PM Nikola Gruevski said six foreign companies, three from Turkey and three from different European countries, decided to invest in Macedonia.
“The three Turkish companies have announced their intentions to invest. We expect the other three companies to announce their decisions by the end of April or the beginning of May. Some of them are interested to invest in Skopje, but there are companies that showed interest to invest in other parts of Macedonia. One of them might invest in the Ohrid-Struga region i.e. in the Technological and Industrial Development Zone that is yet to be constructed. Another one might invest in Veles,” said the PM. He added that there are at least six more companies that are expected to decide whether they would invest in Macedonia or in some other country. Gruevski reported that the project for the construction of an underground road is the biggest project of the City of Skopje amounting from 40 to 45 million euros. He underscored that the City of Skopje, in cooperation with the Government and the Municipality of Centar, published the tender for construction of an underground road between NBRM and the Government premises. “So far around 20 companies have taken the tender documentation of the underground road construction project, and there is enough time if other companies want to take the documentation. Both domestic and foreign companies have shown interest,” informed the Prime Minister.
