On request of the Ministry of Environment and Physical Planning, at the start of February, the Government of North Macedonia approved the start of the procedure for securing a loan from international financial institutions for implementing regional systems for waste management in the Southeastern, Vardar, Pelagonian, Southeastern and Polog regions. Over €55.3 million will be necessary to start the construction of the basic infrastructure for waste management, informs the ministry.

When it comes to the implementation of the regional waste management system in the Polog region, Switzerland expressed its preparedness to continue with the financial support from the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO). The Swiss authorities conditioned that the state will also have to have its share in the assets necessary to continue with the planned activities.
