    North Macedonia extends wage support to enterprises as Covid-19 pandemic enters the third wave

    26 March 2021

    In the last quarter of 2020, the ILO supported the Organization of Employers of Macedonia (OEM) and Business Confederation of Macedonia (BCM) in conducting a second countrywide enterprise survey with the aim to track business challenges and needs resulting from the protracted COVID-19 crisis. The survey helped to assess the effectiveness of economic emergency measures implemented through the four support packages launched by Government so far. Additionally, the survey sought to identify the type of support expected under the fifth support package. Wage subsidy, initially discarded by the Government was assessed as the most sought after type of support by the enterprises. The evidence collected through the survey was crucial in informing the Government decision to extend the wage subsidy schemes for enterprises, which was included in the new support package, adopted in February 2021.
