A delegation from the Union of Municipalities and Communities from the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), headed by the union's president Andrei Petrov, on Thursday visited the offices of the Central Union of Greek Municipalities and Communities for an exchange of views and cooperation on issues of decentralization and local government.
The meeting was held in the context of the European program CARDS, which aims at supporting FYROM's government in the process of transferring authority to local government.
The two sides proceeded in setting up a Permanent Cooperation Committee, comprised of local government officials, experts and technocrats.
It was also agreed for a KEDKE delegation to soon visit FYROM.
