The INTERREG IPA Cross Border Cooperation Programme “Greece – Republic of North Macedonia 2014-2020”offers ample opportunities for cooperation, good neighborly relations, and socio-economic development for the two countries. The cross border area enjoys the benefits of a vast, varied and mostly unspoiled natural environment; but it also faces many socio-economic challenges. This area where Thessaloniki, Kilkis, Edessa, Florina, and Pella and Vardar, Pelagonia, Southeast and Southwest¬†are located is the stage for the joint actions of our countries.

The joint Programme empowers public authorities, private non-profit organizations and other institutions as well as the citizens to work together on common challenges and problems, seeking for smarter solutions which can be better achieved when we cooperate.
