Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, will travel to the Republic of North Macedonia, on Monday 18 February, to promote the Commission’s enhanced support to the Western Balkan partners in the digital transformation of their economies and societies.

She will discuss the implementation of the various priorities of the Digital Agenda for the Western Balkans with Prime Minister Zoran Zaev and Minister of Information Society and Administration, Damjan Mancevski. Commissioner Gabriel will also visit the future Science and Technology Park, an important project aimed at establishing technology transfer and accelerating the growth of start-ups and businesses. The EU has financed (€175,000) a feasibility study for establishing the Science and Technology Park.
