Skopje, 7 October 2017 (MIA) - To Increase youth engagement in the decision-making process of the local self-government and to improve the status of young people is one of the priorities of VMRO-DPMNE's program that includes many projects, said Koce Trajanovski, the candidate of the VMRO-DPMNE-led coalition running for mayor of Skopje.
"Young people are the driving force of every society. Our new program includes an array of projects for young people in Skopje. The most important one is a project on the opening of a city youth office tasked with tackling local youth policies, providing services and support all the while serving as an umbrella organization of the municipal youth offices across Skopje," Trajanovski said.
The City of Skopje, he announced, will draft a new youth strategy 2019-2023 to improve the status of young people.
"Additionally, we will organize open days with young people once a month where they can present suggestions and ideas to make Skopje better," the mayoral hopeful pledged.
Trajanovski said the City of Skopje would keep investing in areas considered very important for young people, such as sports, culture and entertainment. ba/16:34
