Macedonia prides itself with its educated, highly-qualified, and ethical workforce. Educational standards at technical higher educational institutions in Macedonia resemble those of the Western countries.
But still the young population in Macedonia is facing with a big rate of unemployment. The reason for that is high standards of education (almost 70 % of young population is high educated) for which is very difficult to find work in Macedonia.
In order to support companies and increase their international competitiveness, the Government has introduced legal reforms in the functioning of the labor market that enable easier hiring and firing of the labor force.
