On the occasion of the International Roma Day April the 8th, President d-r Gjorge Ivanov sent the following message to the members of the Roma community in the Republic of Macedonia.


It is my distinct pleasure to congratulate April 8th, the International Day of the Roma, to all the members of the Roma community in the Republic of Macedonia.

April 8th is the day dedicated to the largest ethnic minority in Europe and is a welcome opportunity to celebrate the Roma history and culture, but also to remind us of their current social and economic situation in various countries around the world.

The Republic of Macedonia is proud of its Roma community, which represents an integral part of the Macedonian society. The lever of rights Roma have in Macedonia is a model for the rest of the World. Namely, in our country the Roma have a right to education in their native tongue, a right to vote for Roma parties and are represented in all state institutions. Two days ago I've had the opportunity to decorete the Queen of Roma music Esma Redzepova Teodosievska with the Medal of distinguished services to Macedonia. This medal is a recognition for Esma, but also for all members of the Roma community for their contribution to build and represent the Republic of Macedonia.

Respected citizens, members of the Roma community,

We will not stop to reflect on what was accomplished so far. The battle to improve the social and economic position of the Roma must not stop. It is a permanent process that requires everyday activities. I assure that as President and as a person I will be a dedicated and faithfull supporter of this process.
