According to Pavel CATER, the President of BNAA - The National Bureau of Motor Insurers in the Republic of Moldova, in the last 5 years, the insurers paid only 60% of the real value of MTPL claims, because of the ageing factor.

The current rates are calculated based on statistics from 2002-2008. We believe that claims will increase considerably, by 40%. Still, taking into account the increase of the services' quality, the rates should also increase", explained Pavel CATER.
