Mirjana Naumoska, the head of Invest Macedonia’s office for Denmark and Sweden, considers co-operation between the countries to be a win-win situation.
“There are many areas where Danish and Macedonian companies can find a mutual interest,” she said.

“In production and trade we already co-operate in the textile industry, ICT and agribusiness – particularly food and beverages and the wine industry. Other potential areas are automotive, real estate, machinery, pharmaceuticals, medicine, and even the film industry. Furthermore there are Danish companies already present on the Macedonian market like COWI, Novo Nordisk, Jysk, Vedel IT and others.”

In order to overcome our handicap of being a small country with a small economy, we have free trade agreements with all countries in Europe, both in and out of the European Union, except for Russia. These agreements allow for free exports from Macedonia", Gruevski said.

"We offer lowest taxes in Europe and lowest costs for opening a business, as well as in logistics, energy and in competitiveness of the work force. Macedonia offers series of opportunities to invest in technological industrial development zones, where investors are freed from paying income tax in the first 10 years and also pay no value added tax and customs for their imports", Gruevski said.gruevski

Steve Sharpe, President and CEO of Euromax Resources which is already working on major mining developments in Macedonia, said: "Our experience in Macedonia is excellent.

We have constant dialogue with ministers that are available 24 hours a day".
