USAID’s Partnership for Better Business Regulation Project hosted a panel discussion on regulations affecting the field of spatial planning, construction land, and construction works, emphasizing challenges faced by construction companies in the country. It was the sixth forum organized by the project, aimed at initiating discussions between the business community and public institutions on shared legal compliance issues.

Edward Gonzalez, Director of the General Development Office, USAID Macedonia, commented on the panel discussion, “The construction industry is a leading sector in the economy, contributing significantly to employment and overall GDP. However, construction companies face daunting challenges that slow the process of acquiring the necessary certificates and work permits, leading to significant delays in their day-to-day activities and, ultimately, higher costs. It is essential for all relevant stakeholders to be involved in the development of effective solutions that address regulatory issues. Today’s discussion is a step in that direction.”
