The effect of foreign investments and the direct benefits for citizens are the most important and this is the main priority we are guided by, said Jovan Despotovski, director of the Directorate for Technological Industrial Development Zones – TIDZ.
“In the last two years, we have had salaries higher than the state average. If six years ago, these companies paid 10 to 12 million euros into the budget, this year alone, according to estimates, we expect 75 million euros, which is seven times more. We have shown that this is no longer a country of cheap labor, but our main priority is well-paid jobs with which we will keep our children at home,” Despotovski pointed out in the Stadion show broadcast on Kanal 77.
For this purpose, TIDZ has launched a campaign called “The Future Begins at Home” whose goal is to present job opportunities through the examples of young people who work in the Zones.
“The results of these three years have shown that there is no need for expensive campaigns abroad, but there is a need to show that there are opportunities for well-paid jobs in this country. And all those young people who are thinking of leaving the country abroad and working in the same factory, in the same workplace in Italy or Germany, should realize that the same thing exists here,” said Despotovski.
