As a government we have to resolve ongoing issues, and if you ask business people, human capital is the biggest issue they are facing, which is why we’re creating conditions for pay rise, Deputy PM for Economic Affairs Koco Angjusev told Telma TV on Monday.

We have to help companies keep people. Therefore, investments in human capital will be the focus of the 2020 draft budget. Wage and pension rise is not a pre-election bribe, but is based on the growth of economic figures in the last two years, Angjusev said.

With minor government debt, he said, we are seeing economic growth and better results.
