Skopje, 10 October 2018 (MIA) - Ministry of Economy is to provide MKD 16,5 million (EUR 267,975) for realization of the project for restoration of the shop windows in old bazaars in Skopje, Bitola and Ohrid.
“A total of 182 applications were submitted at the announced public call of which 160 met the requirements. Of these, 115 applications were submitted for Skopje old bazaar, 38 from Bitola and 7 from Ohrid bazaar. Unfortunately, there was no application from the Struga Bazaar,” Economy Minister Kresnik Bektesi said Wednesday prior to signing of the agreements with the municipalities Centar, Cair, Bitola and Ohrid for allocation of funds from project for restoration of shop windows in the bazaars.
He said that the municipalities have one year deadline to implement activities and the funds that will eventually remain unused should be returned in the budget. Additionally, shopkeepers will have no obligation to participate with their own funds for project’s realization, which also foresees funds for entire documentation.
Mayor of Cair municipality Visar Ganiu said that the project will contribute to development of tourism and local economy, but the most important thing is to preserving the authenticity of the bazaar.
Economy Ministry launched the project for restoration of shop windows in 2015 in Skopje old bazaar and in 2017 was expanded to old bazaars in Bitola and Ohrid. sk/14:47
