Minoski: Government economic policies yield results – unemployment at the lowest level

Skopje, 13th September 2016 (MIA) – Each investment is of significance for the Republic of Macedonia, since it contributes to increased economic activity and job creation, Minister of Finance, Kiril Minoski, said at today’s press conference, at which construction of tennis courts in Aerodrom Municipality was announced.

He also said that one of the key priorities of both the Ministry of Finance and the Government’s economic policies was boosting the employment and the investments.

- It is obvious that the efforts the Government of the Republic of Macedonia and the economic team made in the past period have yielded results, being evident from the low unemployment rate, i.e. historically the lowest unemployment rate. However, what is favourable is also the highest employment rate, showing that all efforts to attract foreign investments, as well as the efforts to encourage domestic investments, have borne fruit, which, after all, contributes to lower unemployment, Minister of Finance stated.

Last week, State Statistical Office announced that unemployment rate in the second quarter dropped to 24%.
