In order to overcome our handicap of being a small country with a small economy, we have free trade agreements with all countries in Europe, both in and out of the European Union, except for Russia. These agreements allow for free exports from Macedonia", Gruevski said.

Macedonia offers series of opportunities to invest in technological industrial development zones, where investors are freed from paying income tax in the first 10 years and also pay no value added tax and customs for their imports", Gruevski said.gruevski
