Today, BCM’s membership consists of 8.500 companies associated in 13 business associations, with three regional offices in Prilep , Tetovo and Gevgelija, as well as headquarters in Skopje.
Apart from representing and advocating the interests of its members, 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 of Macedonia 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.
