Prime Minister Zoran Zaev told Sunday’s interview with RFE/RL’s Balkan Service that eight foreign companies made decisions to invest in Macedonia and are awaiting confirmation from the parent companies to sign the contracts.
“We signed 10 contracts with foreign investors in ten months, and additional negotiation teams of eight companies decided to invest in Macedonia and are awaiting confirmation from parent companies to authorize them to sign the contracts. We are also negotiating with 200 companies. And probably this is not only our success, it is something that the previous government started but we have only upgraded and developed,” Zaev said in the interview.
Zaev hopes that projected growth of 3.2 percent is attainable, if 65 to 70 percent of the announced capital investments will be realized.
