Trade between Macedonia and Turkey should increase from the present 450 million dollars to a billion dollars. This is the goal that the Prime Ministers of Macedonia and Turkey, Nikola Gruevski and Ahmet Davutoglu, set during the latter's official visit to Macedonia on Tuesday. At the joint press conference, they said they were very pleased with the traditionally good political relations, which, they stressed, should be mirrored by economic cooperation.
According to Gruevski, reaching a trade volume of a billion dollars is attainable. However, he added, "this does not depend only on us."
"Our responsibility is to provide a good business climate and the rest should be accomplished by businessmen," he said.
