With its export orientation, the Macedonian textile industry has an important role in addressing the urgent problem of the Macedonian economy - unemployment.

The textiles, clothing and footwear is one of the most important export sectors of our country, with

- Total exports of EUR 400 million and share in industrial exports 25%

- Participation in the Macedonian GDP by 15%

- Participation in the total industrial employment of 28%;

Currently, Macedonia and Serbia are flexible manufacturers of clothing and textiles. Local companies develop production program aimed at specific market threads of international markets where demand is characterized by a preference for small batches clothing with a complex design. At the same time, Macedonian and Serbian companies are directed more towards the middle and high price segment of the European textile market. One of the main advantages that will continue to be exploited is the ability for rapid delivery of small batches to the European market.
