The global economy is still very fragile and challenges are large. The general economic forecast has improved compared to last year, despite slow recovery, President Stevo Pendarovski said on Tuesday, addressing the inaugural Skopje Economic Finance Forum on “Economic recovery and growth post-COVID”, organized by the Ministry of Finance.
Pendarovski underlined that immunization is a key factor for overcoming the crisis, adding that the process mustn’t slow down and that vaccine distribution must be balanced.
Aside from the economic effects, he also discussed in his address the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic to political stability, trust in institutions, rule of law and solidarity, stressing the importance of joint action at global level.
“Immunization is the key factor for overcoming the crisis. The process mustn’t slow down and vaccine distribution must be balanced,” Pendarovski said.
