SKOPJE, November 21 (Itar-Tass) — Russian-Macedonian trade turnover exceeded 600 million dollars in January-October reaching its pre-crisis level, Director of the Macedonian-Russian Chamber of Commerce Deyan Beshliev told Tass on Sunday.
He particularly marked the fact that “supplies of Macedonian agricultural products to Russia have sizably increased”. “Our task is to avoid sizable trade imbalance in Russia’s favor, trying to balance supplies of Russian energy resources to Macedonia and exports of our goods,” Beshliev said.
According to him, Macedonia “has reached certain progress in improving the investment climate in the country”. He said “the program to attract foreign investments developed by the Macedonian government yields more and more favorable results every day, which increases the presence of foreign capital in the economy of the Republic of Macedonia”.
“I would like to encourage potential Russian investors. We have a positive experience of Russian-Macedonian cooperation, which has already brought good dividends, in the sphere of tourism, winemaking and in the energy sector,” he stressed.
According to the director of the chamber of commerce, “the key role in the development of bilateral cooperation belongs to the Russian-Macedonian intergovernmental commission for trade, economic and scientific cooperation”.
“It is owing to its chairmen – Russian Minister of Regional Development Maxim Travnikov and Macedonian Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Zoran Stavreski, that all necessary conditions have been created for expanding business contacts between economic entities of the two countries,” he stated.
“I am confident that if the commission continues to function efficiently, this will have a positive effect on the development of our trade relations,” the specialist stressed.
