The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Moldova (CCI a RM) has launched today, February 10, 2021, the contests “Trademark of the Year 2020” and “Award for achievements in the field of quality of products and services in 2020”.
“Trademark of the Year” is the XVIII-th edition and is jointly organized with the State Agency on Intellectual Property of the RM (AGEPI), in partnership with the National Anticorruption Center and UNDP Moldova, within the project “Curbing corruption for building sustainable integrity in the Republic of Moldova”, implemented with the financial support of the Norwegian Ministry of the Foreign Affairs.
The contest is one of the most efficient mechanisms of promoting trademarks on the internal and external markets, but also successful practices in the field of marketing and branding. The trademarks can be registered at the contest at one or more nominalizations out of 17, including 2 new nominalizations: „Business On-line” and ”Family Business”.
In total, during the 17 editions, over 1500 trademarks have participated in the competition.
The “Quality Award’ is in its 7th editions and aims at identifying companies that have successfully implemented quality management and promoting modern approaches to quality.
This is the first and unique competition dedicated to quality management and is considered a preparation phase of an enterprise to promote the products on the external market. The application of the excellence criteria for self-evaluation allows the participants to obtain an external image of its activity, to assess in what measure the activity of the company satisfies the needs of consumers, staff, providers, the society and to determine strategic development objectives.
Over 210 companies have competed during the 6 editions, to highlight the quality of their products and services.
The objectivity of nominating the winners in both contests is ensured by the qualitative assessment of the professional jury, but also following the survey carried out among consumers. The award ceremony will take place within the traditional ceremony of the Gala of Moldovan Business, that will take place between Mai-June 2021.
The interested companies can send participation forms until May, 31, 2021, on the e-mail addresses: email@example.com , firstname.lastname@example.org. The contest regulations, participation forms and all the necessary materials can be found on the web-site of the CCI of the RM and of the AGEPI.
