National Entrepreneurship and Competitiveness Council


The previous Council stopped its work in the period 2007-2010, and only recently under the initiative of Vice premier for economic affairs the Council reorganized its activities and bodies. The National Entrepreneurship and Competitiveness Council (NECC) is a tripartite public-private-civil body comprising leaders from the private, government and civil society sectors advocating and leading the implementation of policy changes crucial to the development of more competitive Macedonian businesses. The Council was set up in early 2003. The mission of the Council is to raise the dialogue of the private, civil and public sectors to the level of a strategic and long-term partnership to make major contribution in the building of the economic prosperity of the FYR of Macedonia.
The primary task of the NECC members is to work together on the development of national strategies aimed at improving the conditions for doing business that would help Macedonian companies, clusters and other active business associations to develop, promote and export their high value products and services and thus create higher and growing incomes for the average citizen. The NECC carries out its programme’s activities through the following organisational bodies: Assembly, Management Board, Supervisory Board, Advisory Group and 6 internal committees - working groups for Competitiveness, Clustering, Technological Development, Education and Human Resources, Local Economy Development Regulations and Budgets and cooperation with donor organisations.
