New foreign investment, new jobs, export promotion…

Our everyday efforts in this field are already giving results, certain projects have already been announced in the media, and the rest are in the negotiation phase. The process of attracting foreign direct investments in Macedonia has an upward trend. With the new economic policy in just a few months in the part of the economy and attracting investment, the Government has created many success stories. Currently, there are 19 companies with which the Government is in direct negotiations at the last stage, and with some of them we already have signed contracts.

In terms of export promotion, we plan to focus on domestic companies through creating conditions in which SMEs will increase their competitiveness and strengthen their role both on the internal and international market. In the long run, this will contribute to the steady growth of enterprises, opening new jobs, increasing their production and profit growth.

Our efforts will be in the direction, the privileges for foreign investors to be available for domestic companies. The business climate in the country will be improved through changes in the regulation, which will give domestic companies more opportunities for investment and growth.


We are working to create equal conditions for domestic and foreign investors. We will encourage them to develop and invest domestic companies as well. The size of the investment must not affect the conditions for investment, there must not be any privileged companies on this basis.
