Moldova covers an area of 33,800 square kilometers, with a population of approximately 3.55 million as of January 2019, and a per capita GDP of US $ 3189 in 2018.
The industrial revolution broke out in Britain in the 1960s in the 1960s, and it has been more than two hundred years until now, and Moldova in Europe is still a country dominated by agriculture and animal husbandry. “Business is not alive”. Without industrialization, Moldova alone cannot develop.
Moldova is as fortunate as its neighbors, Romania and Ukraine.
Moldovans and Romanians have the same ancestry and are descendants of the Dacias.
Due to the weak elementary school, Moldova has been bullied by neighboring countries; in 1359 Bogdan I created an independent feudal Principality.
However, since it became a vassal state of the Ottoman Turkish Empire in 1487, Moldova was repeatedly merged by Romania and Russia.
Until August 27, 1991, the Republic of Cordova declared its independence.
From the history of more than 500 years from 1487 to 1991, Moldova is like a beautiful girl, robbed between Romania and Russia, and sent to the past.
After the independence of Moldova, there was no spring.
The hills and valleys of Moldova criss-cross; natural resources are relatively scarce, lacking hard coal, iron ore, oil, and natural gas (important raw materials for the industry).
Moldova ’s industrial foundation is weak, but 80% of Moldova ’s land area is high-yield black soil, suitable for the growth of crops, rich in grapes, sugar, cooking oil, and tobacco. It was one of the production bases of Soviet Union fruits and berries, corn, sunflowers, and vegetables.
Therefore, Moldova is a country dominated by agriculture. In other words, farming and winemaking are the two main industries.
Although not wealthy, Moldovans can still find their joy. They can sing and dance. Every major festival, people have to go to the streets to dance and sing.
Also, due to the ethnic integration in the past millennia, after Romania, Ottoman Turkey, Bulgaria, Ukraine and other ethnic groups mixed with Moldovan ethnic groups, more than 10,000 Moldovan beauties are known as the “hometown of beauties”
Because of its proximity to rich Western Europe, Moldova is also a net exporter of immigrants, with more than 1 million young and middle-aged people making a living abroad.
But these beautiful Moldovan girls are often the prey of international traffickers.
An official of the International Population Organization pointed out that “there are many mixed-race children here, and they are all very beautiful, and they are the most sought-after goods in the market, so they have become the main target of international traffickers.”
Beauty and poverty became the cause of doom for some young Moldovan girls.
Compared with Switzerland, Finland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, and other small oil-rich Western European countries, Moldova, which is also a small country, is very poor.
How can Moldova develop? This is a big problem for Moldovans.
