       On a celebration of the Miners Day – August 28th , Nikolajco Nikolov, President of the Macedonian Mining Association – MAR within the Economic Chamber of Macedonia, emphasized that  already has started the process for improvement of mining conditions, mostly, due to the stabilization and increasing of the metals` prices, thus arising the optimism. 

       Companies are expecting that in the following period the state will create conditions for bigger investments, both, from domestic and foreign investors, with the rounding off the legislation, especially  in speeding up the procedures for granting concessions for detailed geological research. All these will contribute also for increasing of the number of employees in this sector.

                                                                                                                      

       In the field of mining, respectively, exploitation and processing of mines are employed around 7.000 workers, which participate with around 10 percent into the industrial production structure and with 7 percent in the overall export of the country.

       By the Minister of Economy, Dr. Fatmir Besimi was pointed out that the mining sector with great difficulties succeeds in surpassing the problems resulting from world economic crisis without dismissal from work.  By granting concessions for detailed geological researches of mineral resources for 42 locations, as well as with a public call that would be published for granting another 142 locations, it is expected that it would spur the interest of the companies to invest in the field of mineral resources.
