FAST SOLUTION FOR THE CRISIS, ARE NEED TO OPERATE THE BUSINESS
President of the Organization of Employers of Macedonia, Mr. Angel Dimitrov was a guest on the show Numbers of Radio Free Europe.
We transfer part of his interview.
If the economy last year grew by a modest 2.4 percent is
below forecasts. The political crisis began to seriously harm the economy. business sector
alert that must be resolved quickly, otherwise the numbers will continue to decline,
will stop domestic and foreign investment, and will decrease consumption which has
most in GDP.That means needed rapid resolution of the crisis, in order to
business functioning. Overpower reason, to complete apathy that lasts more than two
years are the demands of businessmens. Currently, in Macedonia no foreign investment nider our domestic.
Companies refrain from investment, to expand the capacity of the new
employment from taking loans from conquering new markets and even citizens from spending.
And that personal consumption is that which accounts for 64% of GDP in development.

the growth of the economy. So GDP in every country of the growth of GDP is consumption by
citizens. Besides politics, the economy and the events of our major
trading partners. If in our largest contributor, Germany, the economy
growing, and will grow with us. State Statistics announced that GDP
product last year was 2.4%, or the economy grew. Expectations of Government
were the end of the year growth to 2.7% .However, crisis, melt projections. most
growth was recorded in construction, over 28% significant decline from 10.4% in the last
quarter last year was recorded in gross investments, which reflect the total
Investments end of the year to fall by 4.3%. Exports last year grew by 11.5%, while
imports of goods by 7.6%.
The statement of Mr. Ali Ahmeti that the crisis could
last 4 years, for employers it would be a disaster, it is fatal to the business. We live in a society
where the public administration is not functioning without minister or deputy minister . Our society
need professional administration, out of party domination , it should reasonably be overcome, the political crisis to be solved in order to
does not tolerate business.
