OSMANI: NORTH MACEDONIA IS BECOMING A SERIOUS INVESTMENT DESTINATION
11:38, Tuesday, April 09, 2019

Deputy Prime Minister in charge of European Affairs Bujar Osmani today had a meeting with the Ambassador of Australia for North Macedonia, Ruth Stewart.

At the meeting they opened the topics related to the country's European integration and the status of implemented reforms, and they also talked about the potentials for coo[eration between North Macedonia and Australia in several segments.

"North Macedonia is the new reality on the Balkans- a country that has become a leader in the region after overcoming deep political crisis in implementing reforms for European integration and a country that has closed major bilateral issues with its neighbours", stated Deputy Prime Minister Osmani, adding that the created so- called track- record, i.e. visible results from the implemented reforms is an evidence of the work done so far within the European integration process.

"In this period, when the Euro-Atlantic integration of the country is already certain, North Macedonia becomes a country that is both politically and economically stable for foreign investors, and additionally offers a competitive advantage for attracting investors, given the fact that the country has a qualified staff", pointed out Osmani.

Osmani and Stewart agreed that bilateral co-operation between North Macedonia and Australia has the potential to expand and deepen in many areas, and in this regard, emphasising the possibilities to use Australia's bilateral development assistance.  The topic of the discussion was the intensification of the trade exchange, for which the interlocutors agreed to be at a very low level of only $ 9.7 million, despite the increased export of products from the country by 28%. In the end, they pointed out that there is a possibility to facilitate the visa regime, which would be of a great importance to both countries, due to the numerous Macedonian Diaspora in Australia, and in this regard to improve the overall cooperation between the two countries.
