In principle, we are very interested but want to see the details and the manner and conditions for financing, Gruevski said.
They have discussed about signing agreement on air transport for which, as he said, Chinese companies have, already shown interest.
- With Chinese, and other financial institutions we talk for overall closing financing package for construction of primary pipeline inside the Republic of Macedonia and I hope that soon we will close it, with their Exim Bank or the EBRD or with another financial institution, Gruevski said, expressing hope that some of the projects are successfully implemented.
At the bilateral meeting with Prime Minister of Serbia, Aleksandar Vuchikj, however, we confirmed the good relations between the two countries and discussed the promotion of economic cooperation through the implementation of infrastructure projects of regional character.

Makedonische Exporte überschreiten Milliardenmarke
Labels: Export, Wirtschaft
Die Exportquote sei das Ergebnis der verbesserten Wettbewerbsfähigkeit der mazedonischen Wirtschaft. Darin spiegelten sich die vernünftigen Regierungsstrategien wider. Vor allem rühre diese positive Entwicklung von der Einführung der niedrigsten Steuern in Europa, der Anziehung ausländischer Investitionen sowie dem soliden Geschäftsklima für inländische und ausländische Unternehmen. Mit diesen Worten kommentierte der makedonische Vizepremier und Finanzminister Zoran Stavreski die statistischen Daten über die Exportrate in den ersten neun Monaten 2014.
Macedonia's 2014 Exports stand at €3.8B, Imports at €5.6B
In the first 11 months of 2014, Macedonian exports amounted to 3,8 billion Euros, while the imports came to 5.6 billion Euros, the State Statistics Bureau informed. Total trade deficit was 1.8 billion Euros.
Macedonian main export remain car catalysts from the Johnson Matthey plant near Skopje, ferroalloys, ignition conductor sets for vehicles, iron and steel and clothing. On the other hand, imports are dominated by oil, platinum used in catalysts and electric energy.
The European Union remains by far the most important market for Macedonia, with 76,9 percent of the total trade exchange. Nearly 14 percent of Macedonia's trade is with other non-EU Balkan countries. Individually, top trade partners for Macedonia are Germany, Britain, Greece, Serbia and Italy, who combine for 51,9 percent of Macedonian foreign trade.
Dennoch bleibt Gruevski ein jämmerlicher Lappen.

Makedonien auf Platz 64 bei Korruption - Albanien und Kosovo letzter in der Region
Labels: Kriminalität, Wirtschaft
Laut dem Korruptionswahrnehmungsindex 2014 (CPI) von Transparency International sind Kosovo und Albanien nach wie vor die korruptesten Länder in Südosteuropa und teilen sich gemeinsam Rang 110. Makedonien liegt in der Region nach Slowenien und Kroatien auf Platz 64, insgesamt wurden 174 Staaten untersucht.
Slowenien ist das am wenigsten korrupte Land in der Region und nimmt Platz 35 ein. Es folgen Kroatien auf dem 61. Platz, Makedonien auf Rang 64. Bulgarien und Rumänien teilen sich den 69. Platz. Weniger gut schnitten Montenegro (Rang 76), Serbien (Rang 78) und Bosnien und Herzegowina (Rang 80) ab.
„Der Korruptionsindex 2014 zeigt, dass das Wirtschaftswachstum schwächelt und die Bemühungen zur Bekämpfung der Korruption nachlassen, wenn Führungskräfte und hochrangige Beamte ihre Macht missbrauchen, um öffentliche Mittel für private Zwecke zu nutzen“, sagte der Vorsitzende von Transparency International José Ugaz.
