ECONOMIC RESEARCH & POLICY INSTITUTE


ABOUT US Finance Think is independent economic institute founded in 2012. The three words that characterize Finance

Think are economic thinkers, impact and creativity. We nurture ideas, harness our knowledge and creativity for them to become reality and to change people’s lives. Several defining qualities shine through our young history: the consistent excellence of the research; the institute’s ability to stay fresh and innovative by regularly reinventing itself to stay ahead of the tide of change in the economic environment; and a determination that its work should produce real change in the real world. Those of us who have had the great pleasure to serve this think tank can look forward to the years to come with a real sense of accomplishment and with the expectation of notable contributions to a more economically developed Macedonia and Western Balkan.
