Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski promised in his New Year's address prosperity, more jobs, more foreign investments, higher salaries and pensions, and construction of roads and railroads. His address, which at moments resembled an election campaign speech, was in stark contrast to the address of opposition leader Zoran Zaev, who urged the people of Macedonia to unite in order to "liberate" the country.  

President Gjorge Ivanov also wished the people of Macedonia a happy new year urging them to build Macedonia with positive thoughts by the highest European values, criteria and standards.

Prime Minister Gruevski announced at least 25 new foreign investments, continuation of the road infrastructure investments, a start of the construction of the gas supply network from Kumanovo to Stip, and providing conditions for the remaining primary gas grid across the country.
