Country Overview

North Macedonia has advanced significantly since declaring independence in 1991, with established democratic institutions and transparent elections at all levels of government. The contests for parliament in December 2016 and at the municipal level in October 2017 brought an end to a particularly dark chapter characterized by corruption and strained relations with the United States. The current juncture, after resolving the decades-long name dispute with Greece, provides an important opportunity to consolidate past development assistance gains while exploring opportunities to work more closely with the citizens of North Macedonia on shared goals, including progress toward greater Euro-Atlantic integration. This is a historic moment for the country to consolidate progress, build a more resilient and self-reliant economy, and contribute to the stability of the western Balkan region.
