The preparation of IPA III Cross-Border Cooperation Programme Serbia – North Macedonia for the next seven-year financial perspective 2021 – 2027 is in progress. At the very beginning of this process, we have asked you to help us by filling out a questionnaire needed for the preparation of SWOT analysis, one of the essential parts of the future programme document. In the previous months, a Joint Task Force (JTF) for programming discussed on and adopted the 1st draft of the Programme document which we would like to present to you on this occasion and invite you again to give your contribution to this important process by providing your suggestions and proposals on this document. Well-observed and well-described needs lead to better defined activities for the achievement of goals. These activities shall on a later stage be presented for funding under this Cross-Border Cooperation (CBC) Programme – and you, as the potential users, are the best people to communicate the real state of affairs.

We would kindly ask you to read the 1st draft of the Programme document and to submit your suggestions to the e-mail address given below. We also encourage your initiative to forward this message to all individuals and institutions and/or organisations, which, in your opinion, could contribute to better understanding of the needs of the programme area of this cross-border programme through their active participation in this joint and transparent IPA III programming process.  All submitted comments and suggestions shall be considered and discussed during an online meeting in January 2021.

Please send your comments and suggestions by 31 December 2020 to the following e-mail:
