German electronic giant Siemens will invest in a software development center in Macedonia.

Siemens's regional manager for development, Vasilis Kastanis, and the Macedonian vice-prime minister in charge of economic issues, Zoran Stavrevski, announced this today in Skopje.

The software center, which will be located in Skopje, plans to employ 10 to 20 persons in the initial stage of the project, Kastanis said.

According to Stavrevski, opening of the Siemens's software center stands as a proof of increasing interest of the foreign companies to invest in Macedonia.
