North Carolina has a rich experience of collaboration with the Republic of Moldova, including the Municipality of Chisinau, which began in 1999, when the first bilateral Memorandum of Intent was signed between the two countries. At the same time, this cooperation is strengthened by the Sister Cities International platform, in the context of the cooperation agreement between the Buiucani sector of the city of Chisinau and the American city of Greensboro (26.09.2000).
