    Economy Expert: Macedonia Very Lucky Not to be in Eurozone
    Monday, 10 October 2011

    Macedonia should be grateful and count its blessings for not being part of the eurozone and able to keep the competitiveness of its economy, says Martin O. Hutchinson, former advisor of the Macedonian Government, in an interview with Voice of America.

    Hutchinson believes that the Greek debt crisis does not mean too much to Europe.

    "This is a correction of the mistakes made in 1981 and 2002, clearing up of the disturbance created through over-subsidizing of Greece, allowing its living standard to be fully uncompetitive. The problem now is that stock markets have expanded the mistrust over the payment capability of other European countries. This could have been resolved by bringing back the drachma, but is now a threat to the entire European Union", says Hutchinson.

    According to him, the Greek debt and eurozone crises could have an effect on Macedonia.



    "In the short-term, export to Greece will be heavily hit, whereas investments there will reduce. The problem in the long-term will be that EU enlargement will slow down, while the accession criteria will become stricter", stresses Hutchinson.

    Asked what steps should the Macedonian Government undertake in order to minimize the negative effect on the economy he says efforts should be invested in creating a budget surplus.

    "I have not analyzed Macedonia's economy for several years, but the most important thing is to preserve the international funding of Macedonia's needs, especially in the private sector. The government must do everything in creating a budget surplus, since a sharp increase of expenditures is quite realistic", adds Hutchinson.

    He believes Macedonia should efficiently integrate its economy with the EU as a whole, which would result in Union membership.

    "On the short run, all business contacts with EU member-states, excluding Greece, will enhance development and help the upping of Macedonia's living standards at EU levels", underlines Hutchinson.

    An investment banker with more than 25 years’ experience, Hutchinson has worked on both Wall Street and Fleet Street and is a leading expert on the international financial markets. In February 2000, as part of the Financial Services Volunteer Corps, Hutchinson became an advisor to the Macedonian Government.

    Macedonia administers good macroeconomic policy: WB official

    Washington, October 12. The World Bank is satisfied from the development of Macedonian economy following the 2009 global recession, projecting a 3-4 percent GDP growth, says Jane Armitage, World Bank Regional Coordinator for Southeast Europe.

    Armitage stresses in an interview with Voice of America in Macedonian Language the country's low indebtedness in the public sector as a factor for sound macroeconomic policy.

    "Macedonia has a much lower indebtedness in the public sector, ranging between 25 and 26 percent. There are countries with 45, event 60 percent indebtedness in the region. Macedonia is more resistant to new crises due to the long-standing sound macroeconomic policy. Its fiscal deficit of about 2.5 percent is significantly lower compared to neighboring countries. This is a very good position in a time when the situation can become more difficult", assesses Armitage.

    She recommends continuation of such macroeconomic policy, increased competitiveness through enhancement of labor skills, education reforms, improvement of business climate and more investments in infrastructure.

    "It is not enough to have cheap workforce. Macedonia should not be competitive because it has cheap workforce. This means lower living standard. Highly-trained staff is required, which will be competitive and enable export", says Armitage.

    The World Bank official adds that the Greek crisis could have serious effects on Macedonia, Albania and other Balkan states.

    "Greece is an important trading partner for Macedonia. If growth drops there, this is bad news for Macedonian export. Maybe it will be complemented with export in other countries, but most of it goes through the Thessaloniki port, which could not operate because of strikes and protests. If general uncertainty in Greece expands in neighboring countries, this will have a reflection on their economic growth, including Macedonia", says Armitage.

    However, the World Bank is not concerned for the main Greek banks in Macedonia for now, since they show proper liquidity and capital.

    Mak Trade exchange with CEFTA states on the rise
    Monday, 17 October 2011

    Croatia's EU accession will not affect much the Macedonian agriculture-food sector, concluded representatives of the Central European Free Trade Agreement (CEFTA) member-states at a meeting held in Sarajevo, Bosnia&Herzegovina.

    "B&H and Serbia will suffer the biggest damages from Croatia's EU membership. The Macedonian agriculture-food sector could only have problems with export of meat and meat processings", said Saso Despotovski from the working group for agriculture and food industry within the Economic Chamber of Macedonia at Monday's press conference.

    He stressed that Macedonia's exchange of agriculture-food products with CEFTA member-states in 2011 amounted to US$205 million, of which US$120 million in export, mostly vegetables, followed by confectionery products and cigarettes.

    Serbia is the largest trading partner in the trade exchange of agriculture-food products, with a US$55,3 million export and US$53 million import.

    "The biggest problems in the free flow of agriculture-food products in CEFTA member-states are the non-tariff barriers and non-recognition of certificates", said Despotovski.

    Macedonia registered US$634,6 million in total trade exchange with CEFTA member-states in 2010, whereas the amount has risen to US$811,8 million in the first nine months of 2011.

    NEUER TERMINAL ZUM 10-JÄHRIGEN JUBILÄUM
    Der am vergangenen Donnerstag eröffnete Speditionsterminal der Schenker DOOEL in Skopje ist die modernste Logistikanlage in Mazedonien und verfügt über eine optimale Verkehrsanbindung.


    Der neue Terminal ist für uns ein großer Schritt vorwärts, denn unsere Mitarbeiter erbringen ihre Dienstleistung jetzt in einem modernen Arbeitsumfeld", betonte Zoran Lazoroski, Geschäftsführer der Schenker DOOEL Mazedonien, anlässlich der Eröffnung der neuen Logistik-Immobilie in Skopje. Der Manager weiß, wovon er spricht, denn es ist eine Aufbruchstimmung spürbar, im zwanzigsten Jahr der Unabhängigkeit des Staates Mazedonien. Betrug das Bruttoinlandsprodukt 2006 noch 5,23 Mrd., € so liegt man heute bereits bei gut sieben Mrd.. Ausländische Investoren -darunter rund sechzig österreichische Betriebe -brachten im vergangenen Jahr 221,4 Mrd. € ins Land. "Nur die Arbeitslosigkeit liegt immer noch bei mehr als 30 Prozent", berichtet Anita Bavdaz, Handelsdelegierter der Wirtschaftskammer Österreich in Skopje. Infrastrukturell finanziert die EU im Rahmen des IPA-Programms (2007 - 2013) momentan Projekte für den Korridor 10, der von Nord-Serbien bis zur griechischen Südgrenze reicht. Der Ausbau des Korridors 8 (Durres - Tirana -Skopje -Bulgarien) soll von mazedonischer Seite über Konzessionsvergaben erfolgen.

    DB Schenker ist mit dem neuen Terminal heute schon gerüstet: Auf mehreren Etagen des insgesamt 8200 Quadratmeter Nutzfläche umfassenden, ausgesprochen "mitarbeiterfreundlich" anmutenden Bauwerks, befinden sich Büros, das Lager umfasst 2500 Quadratmeter. Der größte Teil (1600 Quadratmeter) davon ist jedoch als Zollfreilager für den Cross-Docking-Umschlag ausgerichtet. Etwa 700 Palettenstellplätze stehen für Einlagerkunden zur Verfügung, denn in Mazedonien hat Kontraktlogistik (Outsourcing) noch viel Potenzial.

    VON BEGINN AN DABEI

    "Das Team belohnt sich selbst für seinen bisherigen Erfolg", so Lazoroski, der auf zehn Jahre engagierte Arbeit zurückblicken kann. Im Jahr 2001 wurde die zum Aktionsradius der österreichischen Schenker &Co AG (Regional Head Office South East Europe) gehörende mazedonische Landesgesellschaft Schenker DOOEL gegründet. Sie bietet sämtliche speditionstypischen Dienstleistungen (inkl. Zollabwicklung) und fungiert in Mazedonien vor allem als Importdrehscheibe mit nationaler Verteilung der Sendungen. Hauptimportländer sind Deutschland, Italien, Griechenland und Österreich. Ein wichtiger Knotenpunkt für den Landverkehr ist dabei neben Wien, Köln, Mailand, Sofia und Ljubljana der Euro-Hub Salzburg. Bei der Luftfracht, die Schenker teilweise über ein Büro am neuen "Alexander der Große-Flughafen" abwickelt, kommt das Hauptgeschäft aus Asien. Gleiches gilt für die Seefracht, die über den albanischen Hafen Durres geleitet wird: "Der Großteil der importierten Waren kommt aus China, gefolgt von Indien und Südkorea", erklärt Lazoroski. Viele Sendungen werden auch über den Flughafen Wien und die DB Schenker-Geschäftsstelle Wien-Albern gezogen. Von dort aus transportieren fahrplänmäßig getaktete Lkw-Verkehre die Waren zur Niederlassung in Skopje. Diese Alternative ist gerade für größere Luftfracht-Importe wichtig, zumal der Flughafen Skopje derzeit hauptsächlich von kleineren Frachtflugzeugen angeflogen wird.

    POWERRAILER

    Abgerundet wird das Leistungsspektrum durch die Integration von Schenker DOO-EL in das Ganzzugprodukt für Südosteuropa, "PowerRailer", über das Importverkehre aus Westeuropa nach Mazedonien laufen. "Nicht nur Importe werden über die Eisenbahn abgewickelt", wendet der Landesgeschäftsführer ein, "auch der Export wird langsam, aber sicher, zur wichtigen Einnahmequelle." Derzeit ist sein Team beispielsweise für den Ausrüstungs-Rücktransport der deutschen NATO-Truppen aus dem Kosovo zuständig. In Kürze wird Schenker DOOEL auch ein Frachtenbahnhof zur Verfügung stehen, der nur einen Kilometer vom Terminal entfernt ist.

    ZIEL: MARKTFÜHRER

    Derzeit beschäftigt DB Schenker in Mazedonien 35 Mitarbeiter, die in den nächsten ein bis zwei Jahren auf 50 aufgestockt werden sollen. Das ist eine große Herausforderung für Lazoroski, denn objektiv betrachtet ist die Wirtschaftslage in Mazedonien immer noch schwierig und ungleichgewichtig auf Import ausgerichtet. Aber schließlich will man in der Region, in die andere Logistik-Dienstleister, wie zum Beispiel DHL, mittlerweile schon für sich erschließen, Marktführer bleiben. Schenker DOOEL betreibt seit 2007 auch ein Verkaufsbüro im Kosovo.
