President Stevo Pendarovski received today representatives of the American Councils for International Education, an international non-profit organization based in Washington, who are visiting our country.
The meeting discussed the activities of the American Councils, which works to improve mutual understanding between countries, exchange ideas between individuals and improve cooperation through education.
President Pendarovski welcomed the work of the organization, which has been active globally for 40 years, and has been present in our country for 20 years and successfully implements cultural and educational exchange programs, including the YES and YES Abroad programs for exchange of high school students.
Wishing further successful implementation of the programs, President Pendarovski expressed confidence that the organization will continue to actively contribute to mutual understanding between cultures, respect for diversity, establishment of leadership skills and understanding of civil society.
