Skopje, 26 February 2018 (MIA) – Macedonia has received 5.4 million CHF aimed to support balanced regional development by the end of 2020.
Minister of Local Self-Government Suhejl Fazliu took part in Monday's presentation of the Sustainable and Inclusive Balanced Regional Development project, financed by the Swiss government and the Ministry together with the Office of the Vice Premier for Economic Affairs.
He said the financial support would go to projects in several different areas, such as tourism, environmental protection, business infrastructure, and social inclusion.
"These are mostly infrastructural projects that can bring about quick effects," Fazliu said during the presentation.
Swiss Ambassador Sybille Suter Tejada said many measures should be taken to improve regional development policies. It is essential that budgets correspond to the level of development, she said, adding that higher transparency and citizen involvement in the regional development projects are key, too. mr/16:56
