The study investigates the current level of tourism development in Macedonia by applying the Tourism Area Life Cycle (TALC) model. Moreover, it assesses the validity and applicability of this model with regard to the evolution of tourism expansion. The article explores several areas of government’s role in the process of tourism growth at each TALC stage. The analysis is based on secondary data sources. The results point that tourism in Macedonia is in the development stage. The general findings indicate insufficiently developed tourist supply which is a must in tourism development. Finally, the study recommends practical remarks aimed at motivating key players in the tourism arena to focus their attention on identifying an effective framework for improving their current modest results and formulating sound economic and tourism policies.
