We in Macedonia and the world went through a difficult and turbulent year, but despite the political crisis, it is good that we have preserved economic stability, says the president of VMRO-DPMNE, Nikola Gruevski, in his New Year’s greeting to the public.

“All of us and the economy need political stability. That kind of political stability will ensure even more investments, create new jobs and increase the overall standard in 2017. Each of us, politicians from different political parties should learn a lesson from the messages that citizens sent to us during the last election and focus on doing the best we can for the country and all of its citizens”, said Gruevski.

After forming a government, said Gruevski, we should work on an economic plan, reforms in all areas, as well as achieving strategic priorities for the accession of Macedonia into NATO and the EU.

“External influences should be suppressed, their efforts are for something else, not our interests, our country or our people”, Gruevski said in his greeting.

The VMRO-DPMNE leader wished citizens good health, happiness and to achieve their set goals and plans.
