Skopje, 30th October 2014 (MIA) – Industrial production growth of 9.1% in September this year, according to Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Zoran Stavreski, is exceptionally good performance and one more affirmation that Macedonian economy recovers well and that it may achieve the planned economic growth rate of at least 3.5%.

– At present times when Europe almost has not experienced any industrial and economic growth, any achieved growth rate is a good one, in particular the 9% growth rate in Macedonia, being exceptionally good performance and another affirmation that Macedonian economy recovers well this year, Stavreski said at today’s press conference.

He went on that growth in the industry is broad-based and that almost all branches experienced growth, both those operating within the industrial zones, and those outside them.

– Industry growth is pillar of the economic growth and the fact that positive growth rates have been recorded for nine months, taking also into account the solid growth of the construction industry, the services and the agriculture, speaks in favour that such set up policies yield results and we expect for this to continue to happen in future as well, especially given that the developments in Europe will gradually stabilize, Minister of Finance said.
