Skopje, 24th September 2014 (MIA) – Financial zones in Macedonia will be established upon the example of Luxembourg ad they will have positive effects on the economic growth, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Zoran Stavreski said.
In addition to GDP growth, jobs for persons with appropriate education in the field of economy, law, accounting, provision of services to employees, and similar, are also expected to be created. As for Luxembourg, 25% of GDP arises from such financial services, and more than 3,840 Investment Funds were registered and 44,000 jobs were created, Stavreski said.
