The Western Balkans Six Chamber Investment Forum Presents Alkaloid with the "Lead Champion Investor in the Region" award for investing €104.1 million in the past five years

The Western Balkans Six Chamber Investment Forum (WB6CIF), co-founded by the European Union, celebrated its fifth anniversary. In early 2023, it published a call for companies from its six member countries to participate in a regional competition. The competition was divided into six categories, and a committee consisting of one representative from each of the six Western Balkans Chambers of Commerce and a representative from the office of the Six Chamber Investment Forum evaluated the applications.

"Alkaloid" AD Skopje was presented with the first prize in the "Lead Champion Investor in WB6" category at a ceremony held to recognize the achievements of the most successful companies in the region.

Considering the significance of consistent investment and improvement across all areas of operation, which is a high priority in Alkaloid's business policy, this award is another significant validation of the company's accomplishments:

"In its long history, Alkaloid has faced numerous challenges, but investment has been a constant throughout its nine decades of development. Over the past three decades, the company has focused on building and expanding production and research and development facilities and investing in modern equipment, laboratories, technologies, software, and well-trained staff. In the past five years alone, we invested €104,1 million in the region, integrating our operations to conduct business more effectively from its base in Macedonia. We are committed to continuing on this course, working to globalize the Alkaloid brand with dignity and dedication while upholding high ethical standards, credibility, and a professional approach in all of our operations," - said the company CEO and President of the Management Board, Zhivko Mukaetov.

The Western Balkans Six Chamber Investment Forum (WB6CIF) is a joint initiative of the chambers of commerce of the Western Balkans countries, co-founded by the European Union. It represents the interests of more than 350.000 companies and aims to implement joint activities that benefit the business community of the region.
