Investing in Macedonia Series

Investing in Macedonia
Putting capital to work in south-east Europe

Frankfurt Cologne

Macedonia is a country that means business. With its ideal location in south-east Europe, modern infrastructure, competitive workforce, variety of investment incentives and an investor-friendly government, it is proving to be a popular and dynamic location for companies from Europe and around the world.

Macedonia is politically, financially, and economically stable. GDP growth is expected to reach 3.7% in 2014, and 4.1% in 2015, easily outstripping European Union countries. Macedonia is the 7th most tax-friendly country worldwide, and has the Lowest Total Tax Rate of 7.4% amongst 189 economies (Source: PricewaterhouseCoopers – Paying Taxes 2015).

Macedonia ranked 30th in “Ease of Doing Business” according to the World Bank’s Doing Business Report 2015 and 36th in Forbes' “Best Countries for Business 2013”. Additionally, fDi Magazine ranked Macedonia’s Free Economic Zones in Skopje in the “Top 50 Free Zones of the Future” 2012/2013, and “Best Zone for Large Tenants within Europe” 2014.

Financial Times Live, fDi Magazine, and Invest in Macedonia, in association with the Government of Macedonia, present Investing in Macedonia, a series of 13 events around the world. Following the successful events in Europe, Asia and USA, we continue the series with an evening dinner in two locations in Germany this December. 

These events will feature speeches, presentations, panel discussions and networking breaks. Guests will have the chance to listen to, meet and converse with the Macedonian Prime Minister and his economic team, along with business leaders who have invested in the country, consultants, economists and officials from international financial institutions.
