Skopje, 20 March 2017 )MIA) - The Economic-Social Council, chaired by Minister of Labor and Social Policy Ibrahim Ibrahimi, reviewed Monday the results achieved from the tripartite dialogue at a national and local level, as well as opportunities and priorities in the coming period.
"Council members agreed that challenges of the country regarding the long-standing political crisis should not be an obstacle for dialogue. The time up to the formation of the new government should be used effectively in order to stimulate the implementation of already adopted economic and social policies", said Minister Ibrahimi.
He said the Council has achieved progress, both in its institutional strengthening and achievement of its advisory role in creating and implementing economic and social strategies and policies.
"The Council discussed a number of issues, but one of the most significant is the Law on Minimum Salary, where the government acted as a mediator between the trade unions and the employer organizations. We are proud of this law, but the minimum salary should increase in the coming period", said Ibrahimi.
The Economic-Social Council is comprised of 12 members, four each from the government, trade unions and employer organizations. ik/13:47
