North Macedonia

On the way towards the EU

Map of North Macedonia

In the former Yugoslavia, North Macedonia (formerly Macedonia) was the least economically developed of the six republics. It declared its independence in 1991. In 1997, Germany began working together with the country. Initially, KfW Development Bank helped to rebuild the run-down and partially destroyed infrastructure. EU accession criteria are now the priority, with plenty of catch-up required, especially on environmental issues. KfW is increasingly active in energy efficiency and renewable energies, irrigation and climate-resilient agriculture, municipal infrastructure (district heating) and vocational training to create employment opportunities.
