Macedonia, as a less developed post-transition country, has marked a moderate growing economic performance coupled with high and sustained unemployment during the past decade. In this context, fostering FDI has been promoted by the Macedonian government as one of the main instruments for tackling unemployment and providing further economic development. On the other hand, attracting the FDI has been criticised as a reason for government’s engagement in a race to the bottom deregulation and worsening labour standards. Despite its relevance, the assessment of these policies effectiveness including the FDI effects on employment in Macedonia has received little attention by researchers and policymakers. Having in mind the above considerations, the aim of this paper is to assess the impact of FDI on employment in the manufacturing sector. For this purpose, we attempt to identify the determinants of employment in the manufacturing sector in Macedonia by paying attention to the role of FDI. The results from the analyses are used for deriving conclusions and formulating policy measures in order to reshape the role of FDI in the manufacturing sector.
