Abstract

Development of the meat industry, as one of the most important and most specific economic sectors in North Macedonia is directly influenced by national trade and customs policies. One of the main problems facing the meat industry in North Macedonia is the lack of raw materials for processing. As a result, domestic producers are forced to import frozen pork meat as raw material. The policy of tariff protection of this product resource increases the costs of production of meat processing products and reduces the competitiveness of domestic producers of processed meat on the domestic and foreign markets. Quantifying different indicators of tariff protection of the meat industry in North Macedonia will help us to determine the intensity of protection of this sector and to propose trade and/or customs policy measures to increase and support competitiveness of Macedonian meat processing industry.
