Parcel Delivery and Courier Services to Macedonia
This country in Southeast Europe has a multilayered history and rich culture with influences from the Greek, Romans, Byzantines and Ottoman Turks. This relatively new Balkan country provides a beautiful juxtaposition of old and new – ancient ruins mixed with state-of-the-art buildings, traditional customs integrated with modern technology. The country continues to lure visitors with its historical landmarks, natural beauty and rich culture. Since its independence in 1991, Macedonia has liberated its market, become a member of the United Nations and is an official candidate for the European Union. The UK was a strong supporter of Macedonia long before its independence, but the partnership was officially recognised in 1993. The two nations have held strong and productive bilateral relations that focus on education, world peace, defence, tourism and trade. Macedonia has seen a steady increase in its economy and an improvement to its business environment – much of which has been fuelled by the tourism industry in recent years. While there are currently several UK companies in Macedonia, the country has a developing market that offers numerous opportunities for UK enterprises that are looking to expand, especially as parcel delivery to Macedonia becomes cheaper.
