Prime Minister Zoran Zaev, Vice Premier for Economic Affairs Koco Angjusev and Fund for Innovations and Technology Development director Jovan Despotovski presented the grants to the companies on Friday.

"We want to see these companies as export-oriented, successful in global terms, companies supporting economic development," said Vice Premier Angjusev.
