Wanted: Entrepreneurial spirit
FYR Macedonia's self-employment programme promotes training and employment services for the unemployed.

Since 2007, more than $22 million has been invested in job creation initiatives tailored for the country’s labour market, with the Government contributing 90 percent of the funds.

The programme is open to anyone who is currently unemployed and has a viable idea to set up their own company.

More than 4,000 people started their own business or found secure jobs since the programme was introduced in 2007. The programme has helped to establish a variety of small businesses, including firms providing legal and accounting services, dental surgeries, cafes and restaurants - even goat farms and tattoo parlours.
