Valeriu Muravschi (31 July 1949–8 April 2020)[1] was a Moldovan politician and businessman who served as Prime Minister of Moldova between 28 May 1991 and 1 July 1992.

Early life and career

Muravschi was born in Sirota, Orhei District on 31 July 1949. He graduated from the Faculty of Economics at the "Sergei Lazo" Polytechnic Institute in Chișinău.

Following his graduation, Muravschi had a series of jobs in various economic ministries for the Moldavian SSR: he was a senior economist at the State Committee for Prices from 1971 until 1976, chief of the Pricing Section of the Ministry of Building Materials Industry from 1976 until 1984, head of the Department of Finance from 1984 until 1988, and finally director of the Directorate from 1988 to 1990. He then entered Mircea Druc's cabinet and held the posts of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance from 1990 until 1991. He was appointed Prime Minister of the Republic of Moldova in 1991.


Muravschi's term as Prime Minister was dominated by the conflict in Transnistria.


In 1999, Muravschi founded the National Christian Democratic Peasants Party of Moldova (PNCD) and was president of that party until 2002. It subsequently merged into the Liberal Party (PL) and then the Our Moldova Alliance (AMN) in 2003.

On 31 July 1999, for "long and fruitful activity in the state, contributing to the socio-economic development of the republic and high professionalism", Muravschi was awarded the Order of Work Merit.[2]


He died on 8 April 2020, aged 70.[1]
