Macedonia is Open for Business

U.S. Commercial Service Services for U.S. Companies

Every year, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s U.S. Commercial Service (CS) helps thousands of companies export goods and services worth billions of dollars.

Proven Trade Expertise. The CS global network is located throughout the United States and in U.S. Embassies and Consulates in nearly 80 countries. In countries such as Macedonia, where the CS does not have an office, the agency partners with the U.S. Department of State’s Economic and Commercial Section of the U.S. Embassy to provide specialized trade advice and services to U.S. exporters interested in doing business in the Macedonia market.

Whether you’re looking to make your first export sale or expand your business in Macedonia, we offer the trade counseling, market intelligence, business matchmaking, and commercial diplomacy you need to connect with lucrative business opportunities. In addition, we can help you to develop trade finance and insurance strategies that align with your particular business objectives and help you complete your export transaction.

Services we offer to U.S. companies:

Gold Key Matching Service

The Gold Key Matching Service provides U.S. firms with prescreened appointments in Macedonia with potential agents, distributors, sales representatives, strategic business partners, and government officials. Potential partners are selected on the basis of information provided by the U.S. company describing the nature of desired relationship with a domestic counterpart.

Single Company Promotion

The Single Company Promotion is a customized activity designed to meet the U.S. client’s need for promoting its products, services, or image in the market of Macedonia. The U.S. Embassy Macedonia works with the U.S. company to develop the format for an event or campaign to accomplish the objectives and identify the audience. The U.S. Embassy develops a contact list of the target audience, prepares an official invitation mailing for the event, and coordinates the organization.

Other activities are available, including web-based promotions, catalog events and seminars.

It helps U.S. companies evaluate potential business partners by providing a detailed report on companies in Macedonia which have been personally visited by the U.S. Embassy Commercial Specialist.
