Skopje, 16 May 2018 (MIA) - The law on financial support of investments, which officially enters into force today, stimulates companies to invest, open new and better paid jobs, develop and become more competitive at international markets, said Vice Premier for Economic Affairs Koco Angjusev during Wednesday's visit to company "Johnson Matthey" in the Skopje-based technological-industrial development zone Bunardzik.
Angjusev stressed the measures within the Government's Economic Growth Plan are giving a boost to investors.
"These measures are aimed at stimulating new investments for faster technological development and increased competitiveness of companies, higher salaries for employees and improvement of cooperation with domestic companies. It is very important to support the technological development of domestic companies, create high-tech products and increase their competitiveness, thus becoming potential suppliers of foreign companies," said Angjusev.
