Representatives of the Rural Development Network of North Macedonia as an implementation team of USAID’s Community Development Program and LAG Bojmija spoke with owners and representatives of several successful companies from Gevgelija.
The meetings presented the Program with all its opportunities for equitable economic development and expected results that will make this region a better place to live for all residents thanks to the engagement of all stakeholders, including the private sector.
