The SME project will finance the expansion of an existing hotel located in the center of Chisinau, which caters primarily to a business clientele. Upgraded business facilities and hotel accommodations are needed to attract potential investors. The project will also support the growth of upstream industries and services such as transportation, food pro-cessing, furniture-making and tour operators. The hotel construction will draw primarily on local supplies. The project will generate foreign exchange for the country, tax revenues to the government, and will create jobs.
