A Government delegation led by Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, also including Vice Premier and Finance Minister Zoran Stavreski, Minister for Foreign Investments Bill Pavleski, and director of the Directorate for Technological Industrial Development Zones Viktor Mizo, paid a visit to several Qatar government companies, agencies and funds, in the framework of promoting Macedonia’s economic potentials for attraction of foreign investments and presentation of country’s products.

The Macedonian delegation visited Qatar Holding, the country’s investment fund, second largest in the world with capitalization of USD 400 billion.

The Macedonian team also visited Qatar Diar, a development agency that operates in construction and development projects and Hassad Food, the government’s agency in the field of agriculture and livestock.

“Macedonia offers opportunities for business, it is the most competitive destination for investments, offering low taxes, tax exemptions, proper workforce and other benefits. The result of this Government policy are the two investment waves, one at the end of last year and the other at the beginning of 2012, along with several investment announcements in the course of the year”, stressed PM Gruevski at the meetings.

“We are satisfied from the visit and the interest shown by our hosts. Our intention is to open new opportunities through continual visits and presentations, seek for fresh investments, open new capacities and jobs”, said Vice Premier Stavreski.
