Macedonia is a young country and its economy is in transition from being more or less centrally led to being a free-market oriented one. It is making economic progress as witnessed by the growth of its GNI from 2350 US $ in 2006 to 4800 US $ in 2015. Its WB Doing Business ranking has improved from 81st place in 2006 to 30th in 2015. It now takes only 2 days and 2 procedures to start a business, as against 48 days and 13 procedures in 2006.

Macedonian employers’ interests are being represented by the Business Confederation of Madeconia (BCM). DECP first contacted BCM in 2006 and signed a partnership agreement with them in February of 2009. Cooperation between BCM and DECP has focused on enhancing BCM’s representativeness by increasing its membership both at the sector level and at the regional level, as well as by offering new services. DECP is also assisting BCM in its attempts to be represented in the Economic and Social Council of Macedonia.
