U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Administrator Mark Green visited the Republic of North Macedonia on November 13, 2019.

He visited Fx3x, a Skopje-based, internationally recognized visual-effects and animation company that has worked on Hollywood blockbusters such as Transformers, Guardians of the Galaxy, and The Martian, and attended the unveiling of a plaque to commemorate USAID's relationship with Fx3x. With seed funding from USAID, Fx3x has become an award-winning and Oscar-nominated company with its own training program to prepare the next generation of animators. The success of the firm stands as a testament to what USAID can achieve when it works with the private sector.
