DIASPORA MATTERS

To sustain the country that represents our culture and to help it realize its potentials, Macedonia needs all the help and care that Macedonians around the world can give it. There are enough people to make a true difference and now is a crucial time to aim for serious achievements. Our organization is focused on business and education because we believe that these are the forces that drive development. Our focus is business, not politics and our goal is the wellbeing of all the people in the country. Macedonia has the potential to develop in the most positive ways and make us all proud for being Macedonian, reagardless where we are located in the globalized world of today.

There are estimates that the money that the diaspora sends to Macedonia, accounts for almost 30 percent of the country's Gross Domestic Product. This money is sent by mostly first generation emmigrants in West Europe, Australia, Canada and the United States. Second and third generation immigrants, those who left their towns and villages many decades ago, oftentimes have very few relatives in Macedonia. But that doesn't mean that we shouldn't explore investment opportunities there! The progress of Macedonia should be a high mark on our list of personal achievements.

Macedonia2025 wants to encourage everyone to do their part. You can donate to our cause or you can get in touch with us and find out about the ways you can help. I want to remind everyone that 100 % of all donations to Macedonia2025 go to our educational programs
