Distinguished guests, I’m honored to be here today to speak about the fight against corruption, an issue that is increasingly vital in Central and Eastern Europe. Looking around the room, I see that we are a diverse group – civil society, government officials, journalists, judges, diplomats – and everyone cares deeply about combatting corruption. We also share profound concern about the people and the future of Macedonia, and are committed to working together in the fight against corruption.
