Are the Enterprises of Albanians in Macedonia Marginalized in the Economy of the Country?

Nasir Selimi

Abstract


The number of enterprises with Albanian owners, which are registered and function in Macedonia is not high, on the contrary it is far from structural national participation of the country. This unfavorable situation becomes even clearer if we also consider the size of enterprises owned by Albanians of this country. In fact Albanian entrepreneurs are owners of small and medium enterprises while the numbers of big enterprises that function in Macedonia are not owned by them. This is even more present in enterprises which have as a main activity the reproduction of minerals, minerals extraction, in pharmaceutics, communication services, banking and security services. Beside this fact, Albanians which live and work in Macedonia orientate their business activity mainly on retail trade, offering hotelier services, on small production, and especially on small businesses. Without a doubt one of the main reasons for this is the privatization of social enterprises, which was done in Macedonia during the transition period. Albanians were marginalized from this process and they remain excluded on the portioning process of the social capital, which were an integral part of that country.
