Regional interoperability is an important step towards European Union integration

 

Skopje, November 9th, 2021

The Ministry of Information Society and Administration is making preparations to start implementing the system that enables regional interoperability with Western Balkan countries, as a step towards better integration with the countries of the region and the EU.

As part of this process, it is essential to involve companies working in the software industry in the area of digital transformation, and in view of this, we had an assistance from the Atlantic Council experts in our quest to continue the digital transformation as soon as possible. We are accelerating the efforts for a higher growth rate, faster economic development, since we are lagging behind the developed European countries and we must do everything in our power to facilitate the progress and to improve the lives of our citizens.

Our country was part of the Open Balkan Summit which was held this week, and the commitment for better regional integration and development of the regional interoperability platform was part of the discussion thereat. Topic for discussion with the neighboring countries at the next meeting, which will be held in December in Tirana, will be the modalities and implementation of this platform, that will directly benefit our citizens and businesses.
