At the same time, Green Card totalized MDL 47.3 million (12% less), equivalent of 21.3% of the total market.

MOLDOVA, FY2011: Estimates confirmed: 10% growth in GWP led the market over the first MDL billion threshold

MDL one billion (EUR 61.6 million) wrote in premiums the Moldavian insurers in 2011, 10% more than a year earlier, according to the final financial data centralized by the National Commission of Financial Market (NCFM). Claims reached MDL 348.4 million (EUR 21.3 million), an 8% increase in comparison to previous year. "Last year, the share of insurance market in GDP was 1.3%. If this indicator will reach 3%, as in developed countries, it is clear that doubling the market (MDL 2 billion) is a possibility for the next years", said Vladimir STIRBU, Director of Insurance Department of NCFM.

The Moldavian Information System is on trial

One of the major challenges that the Chisinau supervision authority must face in 2012 is the completion of the informatic system for MTPL policies: "As far as the implementation process goes, we wish we could have used the electronic issuing system from a while back, but the context didn't allow it", declared Vladimir STIRBU.

Artur GHERMAN, CNPF: The Supervision Authority is aware of the MTPL insurance' importance for the market

The second edition of the Seminary dedicated to the motor insurance sector took place at Chisinau, on the 2nd of April, 2012. The event was organized by Media XPRIMM, together with the Moldavian supervision authority - CNPF - The National Commission of the Financial Market. "The organization of this seminary is welcomed and extremely important in the context of the quantitative and qualitative transformations that take place on the Moldavian insurance market: exceeding the threshold of MDL 1 billion for the premiums volume, continuously consolidating the companies, implementing the electronic issuing system and, in general, adjusting the current legislation to the European aquis by implementing the best European standards and practices", observed Artur GHERMAN, Vicepresident of CNPF.

The claims value will increase considerably

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. Thus, after the 6th of April 2012, "the average claim value will increase. We will have more expensive claims to pay. What is the solution? The only possible source is the increase of premiums. 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.

STIRBU, CNPF: UAM proposed the postponement of the reform

According to The Supervision Authority in Chisinau, the eight company members of UAM - The Union of Moldavian Insurers, have proposed the postponement or the extension of the waiver regarding the application of stipulations concerning the elimination of the wear coefficient by three years: "This motion made by UAM members is still in discussion at the highest level - The Parliamentary Commission. If it is not approved, CNPF believes that the insurers can survive this reform without losses", explained Vladimir STIRBU, Director, The Supervision Division, CNPF.
