The Danish and Macedonian governments recently committed to encouraging trade between the two countries in the form of a bilateral investment treaty, which was signed in May and is expected to be ratified in the coming weeks.

Mirjana Naumoska, the head of Invest Macedonia’s office for Denmark and Sweden, considers co-operation between the countries to be a win-win situation.
“There are many areas where Danish and Macedonian companies can find a mutual interest,” she said.

“In production and trade we already co-operate in the textile industry, ICT and agribusiness – particularly food and beverages and the wine industry. Other potential areas are automotive, real estate, machinery, pharmaceuticals, medicine, and even the film industry. Furthermore there are Danish companies already present on the Macedonian market like COWI, Novo Nordisk, Jysk, Vedel IT and others.”
