On Tuesday 13 November 2012, Prime Minister Petr Nečas met the Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski.From the perspective of mutual economic cooperation, the Czech Prime Minister appreciated that Škoda had become the car of choice for the Macedonian government and police. He noted that, with their ability to make competitive offers, Czech companies had also found success in Macedonia’s transport projects, such as the resumption of work to complete the railway linking Bulgaria, Macedonia and Albania, and completion of the motorway between Macedonia and Greece.

Czech firms have the necessary experience and interest in working in the Macedonian market on projects to clear up environmental damage and remove old environmental hazards, projects to construct sewage and drinking water treatment plants, and projects to supply organic waste disposal systems and other green engineering components.

In Macedonia, opportunities are opening up for businesses and investments in the modernization of schools and in the energy sector, where there is interest in exports of electricity generating machinery and equipment, the development of a heat and power transmission network, and hydropower, including cooperation in the construction of small hydropower plants. In the exploration of mineral resources, Czech companies are eager to collaborate on geological surveys and supplies of machinery.
