Slovenia

Republic of Slovenia is an important bilateral partner of the Republic of North Macedonia in the process of implementation of the reforms arising from the Euro-integration process, but also generally in terms of improving the development of the country.

 

The development cooperation between the Republic of North Macedonia and Republic of Slovenia is regulated by the Development Cooperation Agreement signed between the two governments in 2004.

 

The aim of the Agreement is to contribute to the fulfillment of the development goals of the Republic of North Macedonia through support in several priority areas:

-       Sustainable economic development

-       Basic social services

-       Good governance

-       Social security

-       Environmental protection

-       Research/knowledge development

-       Rights of women and children – introduced by the donor as a new priority area in 2016

 

The cooperation is realized in the form of support for development projects, technical cooperation in the field of European integration and other forms of cooperation.

 

During the programming period 2010-2015, the bilateral development cooperation between the Republic of North Macedonia and the Republic of Slovenia was jointly coordinated through the Joint Committee for development cooperation, envisaged in the signed Agreement, composed of representatives of relevant institutions of both countries. During this period, three Memoranda of Development Cooperation were signed within which the following projects were financed:

 

-       Construction of the Modular School in the Municipality of Ilinden (500,000 EUR Slovenian development funds from Slovenia)

-       Construction of a Treatment plant for drinking water in the Municipality of Probishtip (354,000 EUR Slovenian development funds)

-       Reconstruction of the Treatment plant for drinking water in the Municipality of Stip (415.000 EUR Slovenian development funds)

-       Establishment of a GIS system in the East Planning Region (around 200,000 EUR, Slovenian development funds)

-       Finalization of the Wastewater treatment plant in the Municipality of Gjorce Petrov.

In addition to financing of the aforementioned development projects a number of activities for exchange of experience and knowledge regarding the Euro integration process, as well as activities for capacity building (through cooperation with the Center for European Perspective, Center of excellence in finance, ITF Enhancing Human Security) and support to the non-governmental sector were implemented under the frames of these Memorandums.

 

Since 2016, as announced by the donor, development assistance is implemented at a competitive level, without a pre-specified budget allocation of development funds for co-financing of projects in the Republic of North Macedonia.
