The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on enterprises in North Macedonia

In an environment of uncertainty with little official data on the extent of business losses and disruptions to Macedonian enterprises, a joint survey was launched by the Organisation of Employers of Macedonia (OEM) and Business Confederation of Macedonia (BCM) with support from the ILO, and in collaboration with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). The aim was to collect evidence on the effects of the pandemic on enterprises’ operations and viability, and to identify relevant support measures that would be most beneficial for enterprises to overcome the crisis. The report offers policy recommendations for the Government to consider in support of the enterprises.
