The number of employees in TIDZ continues to grow. As of October, the number of employees in TIDZ companies rose to 17,769, which is 10% more than the same period last year. The latest analysis of the Directorate shows that compared to the same period in 2021, we have a growth of 28%, and compared to 2020, there is an increase of over 32%. According to the analysis, in three years, compared to the average number of employees in 2020, more than 4,800 of our fellow citizens have received new jobs in the Zones.
In addition, exports in October exceeded the limit of 3 billion and 100 million euros, which is 3% more compared to last years, but 25% more compared to the first ten months of 2021, i.e. 50% more compared to the same period in 2020 year. Only in October, the companies in TIDZ reached exports of almost 300 million euros.
The companies in TIDZ from the beginning of the year until now have realized imports of over 2 billion and 500 euros. It is at almost the same level, compared to the same period last year, i.e. by 5% more compared to 2021, and by 50% compared to 2020.
Due to these economic trends, the net export as of October is positive and amounts to 21%, which is twice as much compared to the same period last year.
It is expected that this positive growth trend will continue until the end of the year due to the increased volume of concluded investment contracts. This year alone, contracts worth 350 million euros have been concluded, where part of the planned 6,000 new jobs are already being implemented.
For the Government, this is another confirmation that we offer a stable business environment, and above all predictable for companies to be able to realize their long-term plans. All this is the result of the new concept of the Government and TIDZ for attracting foreign investments, for which every potential investor must submit a 10-year investment plan based on which the capacity of the company and the investment are assessed and an individualized package is prepared for the state’s participation in the investment.
