Ms. Willeke Roes is the owner and managing director of European Plants, one of the largest plant nurseries in Europe. The Dutch investment started in 2007 and now employs 170 locals from the region of Tetovo, a city near the capital Skopje. Ms. Roes took over the company in 2019 after the sudden death of her husband (and founder) Joost Michels.
On the occasion of Dag van de Ondernemer the Minister of Economy of the Republic of North Macedonia Kreshnik Bekteshi and the Ambassador Dirk Jan Kop visited the company together with many media representatives, which brought large positive attention for Ms. Roes’ company.
The promotional video that was made during the visit will be used to further promote entrepreneurship as one of the driving forces for economic growth.
