    EBRD improved the forecast for Macedonian GDP growth

    Labels: Finanzen, Wirtschaft

    Macedonian economy improved in 2013. It is noticed annually rising at average of 3.4 % in the first three quarters of 2013, mainly due to growth in investment and exports recovery. Inflation fell and the country continues to make efforts to attract necessary foreign investment, which should contribute to economic growth in the coming years. This is EBRD economist’s estimation for the Macedonian economy.






    European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in its latest report forecasts slow recovery of the economies in the countries where it is present, improvement of the situation in most developed economies, including the U.S. and the euro zone. EBRD economists on global level for this year predict modest growth of 2.7 %, which coincides with their November projection, but it is increasing, because in 2013 the growth rate was 2 %.


    According to the forecasts of EBRD economists, the Macedonian economy during this year will rise to 3 %, which is upward adjustment of 0.3 % from the November forecast.


    - The economy of the Republic of Macedonia in 2013 is improved. It is rising annually with average of 3.4 % in the first three quarters of 2013, mainly as a result of continued strong growth in investment and recovery of exports of some products. In 2013, the inflation declined and the country continues to make strong efforts to attract the necessary foreign direct investment. These efforts should help the prospects for economic growth in the coming years. Growth will remain strong, approximately 3 % in 2014, due to expected growth in exports and the increase in domestic consumption and investment, this is the EBRD economists estimation of the Macedonian economy.


    The other countries in Southeastern Europe with higher GDP growth, besides Macedonia is Kosovo (3.5 %), while all other countries will be with less growth in economies: Montenegro (2 %), Bosnia and Herzegovina (1.8 %), Bulgaria (1.8 %), Albania (1.7 %), Serbia (1.3 %) and Croatia (1 %) or according to EBRD, the average GDP growth in the region of Southeast Europe will be 2.1 %.


    - In all SEE countries that were in recession in 2012, in 2013 was recorded positive economic growth. They are Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia, while growth in Romania is expected to rise up to 2.5 %. As a result, the average growth in the region of 0.4 % in 2012 rose to 2 % in 2013. Intensive exports and improved yields from agriculture were important drivers for recovery of these economies. However, unemployment remains high in the region, says the report.






    For sustained recovery EBRD, economists suggest countries in the region to continue with structural reforms and deal with the consequences of the crisis, including high rates of non-performing loans and long-term unemployment.


    As the emerging economies, they still suffer because of capital reflux and according to the EBRD, will it probably take some time, given the expected gradual tightening of the monetary policy of the United States.


    For the first time since 2011, the net private capital flows are negative in the region of EBRD in the third quarter.


    - World Economy shows positive signs, particularly in advanced countries. However, the EBRD region is not yet out of danger and faces many challenges, says EBRD chief economist Erik Berglof.


    EBRD indicates that reducing the level of debt, especially in some countries of Central Europe and the Baltic region (CEB) and South Eastern Europe (SEE) is factor that delays the credit growth.


    The report highlights the increase lending in local currency in many countries of Central and Southeastern Europe, such as Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria, and Macedonia.


    -According to the analysis of the EBRD, the availability of loans in foreign currency in these countries is influenced by the process of reducing the level of debt, while loans in local currency experience moderate

    Iraqi companies interested in Macedonian agricultural products


    JANUARY 28, 2014BY ALEKSANDRAIN MACEDONIACOMMENTS

    Companies of Kurdistan, an area in northern Iraq, are interested in importing Macedonian agricultural products, especially fruits, and investment as well. They want to establish extensive business links with partners in the country and significantly raise the level of cooperation.

    As was said at today’s business forum at the Economic Chamber of Macedonia, except visas and lack of diplomatic and consular missions, the current problem for the minimal exchange are meager information between the two countries for their economic conditions, opportunities, benefits, potentials.
    - We have very little information on the Macedonian economy and trade. That is why we came here, to get to know directly, to establish direct relations with your companies, which will be a bridge for further cooperation. The potential is huge and it must be used, Yaseen Raheem Faraj of Commerce and Industry Chamber of Sulaimany said.
    Kurdistan realizes 17 percent of the total income of Iraq. It has 6.6 million inhabitants, has broad autonomy and free customs area, rich in oil and minerals. It is an exceptional opportunity for Macedonian companies specializing in the construction, tourism and agriculture. The metal sector, as well as pharmaceuticals is also attractive for cooperation.
    - We want to re-build our economy, to make progress in industry and agriculture. But we are interested in investing in Macedonia. We have imported your products so far, most fruits, but we want to expand our cooperation at all levels, as well as communicate directly with farmers, said Raheem Faraj, expressing confidence that Kurdistan is 100 percent safe and can be used to enter and conquer Iraq.
    According to the Chamber of Commerce, the trade between Macedonia and Iraq is tenuous. However, this is a promising market for us.
    In order to formally strengthen business contacts, Industry Chamber of Commerce of Sulaimany and the Economic Chamber of Macedonia signed a cooperation agreement today at the Forum.
    The business delegation from Sulaimany remains in Macedonia until February 2.

    EC: Macedonia with the second highest GDP growth in Europe last year


    Macedonia’s economic growth in 2013 was among the best in Europe, according to the European Commission’s winter forecast 2014, MIA correspondent reports from Brussels.

    According to the forecast, presented Tuesday in Brussels by EU economics commissioner Olli Rehn, Macedonia’s economic recovery strengthened in the first three quarters of 2013 and was supported by a strong contribution from net exports. Despite a remarkable pick up in private consumption, domestic demand provided only a small contribution to growth, given the major slump in investment. In line with projected developments in foreign direct investment, the forecast expects a turnaround in this profile for 2014 and 2015, with investment strengthening again and the foreign balance proving a drag on growth.

    Macedonia’s real GDP in 2013 increased by 3.2% compared to the previous year, with net exports and private consumption taking over from investment as growth drivers. Contrary to earlier official estimates, gross capital formation declined in each of the three quarters, in annual terms, and by a total of 15% on the year.

    Stimulated by supportive fiscal measures, private consumption increased by an accumulated 5.1% in the first three quarters. Supported by a benign external environment and by new foreign direct investment, net exports of goods and services contributed positively to output growth for the first time since 2010. Among the sectors, the construction industry largely outperformed manufacturing and grew by 33% on the year, after average growth of 4.8% in 2012.

    The profile of growth is expected to change again over the forecast horizon, with a renewed pick-up in gross capital formation, and further gains in household consumption taking the lead. Both public and foreign direct investment are projected to increase, coupled with gradual strengthening in credit extension to the corporate sector. Household consumption is likely to post resilient growth rates over the horizon, in line with expectations for disposable income, deriving from a positive employment trend, higher social transfers, and stable remittances. With new foreign investors taking up production over the horizon, the forecast expects a renewed strengthening of import demand. Notwithstanding the further improvement in major export markets, a renewed, gradual deterioration of the merchandise balance is likely.

    Hence, net exports would impact negatively on growth in both years. This drag could prove sizeable, if FDI, the main source of the country’s exports, evolves less vigorously than expected, reads the forecast, titled ‘Recovery is Gaining Firm Ground in Spite of Weaker Investment’.

    Aided by the firming recovery and official employment programmes, the number of unemployed had decreased by 4.5% at the end of September 2013, compared to a year earlier. With a significantly smaller increase in the labour force, this lowered the unemployment rate to 28.7%, down from 30.6% a year earlier. The number of employed persons increased by 4%, bringing the employment rate to 40.8%, up by 1.7pp from a year earlier, with virtually no change in the total working age population. However, the unemployment rate for 15 to 24 olds remained largely unchanged at 52% over the year. Driven primarily by the expected pick up of public and foreign direct investment, as well as by a continuation of active labour market policies employment is expected to rise further, albeit less strongly, while the unemployment rate would drop further over the forecast horizon.

    While the current-account deficit presumably narrowed somewhat in 2013, due to an improving trade balance, in spite of lower private transfers, the forecast expects it to deteriorate again, due to renewed widening of the merchandise deficit. However, the need for external borrowing to finance the current-account deficit was mitigated in 2013 by a renewed pick up in FDI, and is likely to remain so over the forecast horizon. At the end of the third quarter, FDI inflows reached 3.3% of accumulated GDP, compared to 0.9% at the same time in 2012. Given the increasingly benign investment trends in the country’s major trade partners, and the government’s active recruitment, the forecast expects FDI to remain elevated.

    The general government deficit for 2013 was revised in the autumn from 3.6% to 3.9%, following the adoption of a supplementary budget. In view of anticipated consolidation measures, the forecast expects the deficit to gradually narrow to around 3.6% in 2015. After having jumped in 2012 by 5.6pp to 34% of GDP, the general government debt ratio is expected to have increased by somewhat less in 2013. However, overall public debt, which includes the debt of state-owned enterprises, public agencies and public financial institutions, is likely to be significantly higher. It would also comprise the newly established Public Enterprise for State Roads through which the government channels the increasingly important road infrastructure expenditure – and which can borrow on its own behalf with its debt guaranteed by the government.

    In conclusion, in order for general government debt levels to stabilise, fiscal deficits would have to decrease more substantially than targeted. This is likely to prove difficult in view of recently implemented pension increases, public wage rises as of this year, and an increase in social transfers.

    The EC winter forecast 2014 for Macedonia projects GDP growth of 2.5 and 2.6 percent in this and next year respectively.

    Schwachsinn.

    Bestes Beispiel ist Makedonien. Viele der Investoren haben diplomatische Beziehungen unter dem Verfassungsrechtlichen Namen der Republik Makedonien.

    Das du auch jeden Tag ein makedonisches Thema mit deinem Müll torpedieren musst

    Ohhh... etwa beleidigt? :

    Schwachsinn. Es gibt beides, "Republic of Macedonia" und "Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia". Klar sind die Türken die grössten Investoren, immerhin sind sie Erzfeinde mit den Griechen.

    Ist übrigens kein Müll, sondern die Realität, die ausserhalb deines Zimmers existiert. Geh mal raus und atme die frische Luft ein. Das und frische Kastravec werden dir gut tun.
