General information

One of the prime objectives of the Economic and Trade Section (E&T section) of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Skopje is to promote the bilateral economic ties and facilitate the development of economic cooperation between the Netherlands and the Republic of Macedonia. The E&T section of the Embassy offers assistance to Dutch companies that are interested in investing, finding a local business partner, supplier or subcontractor in Macedonia, as well as to Macedonian companies that are interested in development or expansion of their business activities in/with the Netherlands.

In addition, we facilitate organization of trade missions and company visits in the Netherlands and Macedonia, as well as supporting establishment of bilateral cooperation between Economy and Trade chambers, sectors and associations. The Embassy periodically organizes topical seminars, workshops and trainings, for the Macedonian private and governmental sector aimed at sharing Dutch experiences and values in certain areas. The purpose of these events is assistance to Macedonia in implementation of different aspects of the EU-acquis in the commercial and business sectors, as well as raising awareness and interest in the business community for possibilities of bilateral cooperation and business opportunities.

The main task of the Economic and Trade Section of the Embassy is to provide assistance to companies, which is not only assistance restricted to the field of imports and exports of goods and services, but also includes non-biased information on investment conditions and business opportunities. In both areas - i.e. trade and investments - the Embassy aims to fulfill a match-making role when it is required or requested.
