The Business Confederation of “Macedonia” (BCM) was established in 2001. It started operating as an association of employers which articulated, represented and supported the interests of its members and the interests of the business community in the country. Today, BCM’s membership consists of 8.500 companies associated in 13 business associations, with two regional offices in Prilep and Tetovo and head office in Skopje. Apart from representing and advocating for the interests of its members, the BCM is a catalyst of the expression of the business community and a driver of the social dialog and the industrial relations in the country.
Promoting the concept of running businesses responsibly, we encourage the sustainability of the economy and long-term growth of the companies. The knowledge and the views of the Business Confederation are based upon the constant communication with the members – due diligence, in-depth analyses and measurement of the conditions in various social spheres at local, regional and national level.
