"EU for YOU" Campaign in Tetovo

Ambassador Samuel Žbogar, Head of Delegation of the European Union, together with the Slovene Ambassador Milan Jazbec, visited the town of Tetovo, as part of the recently launched "EU for YOU" campaign.

The ambassadors visited several EU funded projects and met with representatives of the civil society who work on environmental issues.

As the first theme is environment, the campaign travels to places across the country where the EU gives assistance for fighting pollution and providing 'Clean Environment for All' (the motto for this theme).

The overall EU assistance to the country in the field of environment amounts to more than 80 million euros under IPA I (2007-2013). Further support in the amount of 100 million euros is planned under the IPA II financial allocation.

The campaign "EU for YOU" has the objective to raise awareness and inform the public about the EU assistance in the country.
