China provides Macedonia with non-repayable €2.5 million grant


Macedonia gets non-repayable grant amounting to €2.5 million from the People’s Republic of China for financing projects for the needs of the Macedonian citizens.

Deputy Prime Minister for European Affairs Bujar Osmani and the People's Republic of China's Ambassador Yin Lixian signed Monday the annual agreement on economic and technical cooperation between the two countries.

Osmani said that the project cooperation with the People's Republic of China in the past years focused on several priority areas such as education, health and networking, and the most of the financed projects were for the education sector.

“As national foreign aid coordinator, I think we can efficiently target these funds donated by the People's Republic of China. We will determine which the priority projects are and as of next month we will present concrete ideas. We will propose serious projects in accordance with the guidelines and criteria of the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China and we believe that we will soon start with their realization,” Osmani said.

In line with the previous agreements, two projects are currently being implemented - construction of a sports hall in “Rajko Zinzifov” primary school and project for introduction of electronic education.
