The foreign investments in Macedonia in the first half of this year amounted to 101.4 million euros , the National Bank of Macedonia said. This is 21.8% more than last year , but if we analyze the structure of the portfolio of foreign capital , it seems that most of these investments, ie 54.2 million euros actually loans from abroad that have drawn foreign investors . Invested equity capital and reinvested earnings in this period amounted to EUR 48.8 million , which is 25% less than the same period last year.
If this pace of investment continue until the end of the year , it will mean that we can expect a better result than doubled last year, but at the same time , would mean that the water falling government estimates for the inflow of investment between 300 and 400 million.
Recently, the Agency for Trade and Development United Nations released the latest report on foreign direct investment in Southeast Europe, which showed that Macedonia , with a balance of $ 132 million has a minimum investment of all Balkan countries .
