MACEDONIA’S FREE ZONE SKOPJE RANKED 2ND IN SITE SELECTIONS’ TOP 20 ZONES BY PROJECTS, CAPEX & JOBS PER CAPITA

Taking into account the difficulty in comparing zones across world regions, this year Site Selection turned to their primary audience, surveying global corporate investors and site consultants to name their picks for Top Free Trade Zones in the world, arranged by region. Secondly, Site Selection turned to data provided by Investment Consulting Associates who tracked 2,722 investment projects in over 280 non-U.S. free zones from December 2010 through January 2018. Using this data, two indices were created: one that ranks the top 20 zones by totaling projects, their capital investment, and job creation numbers; and a second that ranks the top 20 on a per-capita basis using country-level population figures.
