Macedonian-Turkish businesses on the crisis in FYROM and after the referendum in Turkey
Political crisis in FYROM and the situation after the referendum in Turkey will not have an impact in the commercial relations that exist between Skopje and Ankara. This was the conclusion of the chambers of commerce of both countries. “We have not come here to do politics, but to collaborate”, said Emre Llalan from the Economic Chamber of Izmir, who is staying in Skopje along with a group of businessmen.

He says that after the referendum in Turkey, which offered more power to the president, there will be a strengthening of commercial relations between the two countries.

Marija Tomevska of the Macedonian-Turkish Chamber of Commerce said that there are positive signals to boost cooperation between the two countries.

“In the past, the relations between the two countries have been strategic. Commercial exchanges are high and they amount to 450 million euros, but I think that we will be able to boost them and have more Turkish investors here”, Tomeska said.

The two chambers signed a cooperation agreement in the domain of IT and healthcare, while 20 Turkish companies have expressed their interest on investing in FYROM. /balkaneu.com/
