Within the program by the Academy for good management, Mayor Jovan Stojanoski opened the international seminar for planning the development of the units of local self-government and management of municipal property
Let me first, in my personal behalf and in behalf of the city of Ohrid, to wish you a pleasant stay and successful work on this extremely important seminar, which treats the topics for successful development of the units of local self-government. The development of the municipalities, as primary units for direct realization and practice of the democratic rights of the citizens, is of great importance for the wider development of the community. In this direction, thoughtful and sustainable planning is “condition sine qua non” for the municipalities, not only for the daily functioning of the municipality and successful servicing of the citizens, but also a view towards the future and responsibility for the generations that come after us, said Mayor Stojanoski.
The seminar was supported and organized by the German political foundation Hans Seidel, headquartered in Munich, Bavaria, the Bulgarian Association of municipal officials from Sofia and the international foundation Balkan Net, based in Skopje.
