Dr. Marija Risteska – “most important is the attitude of openness and cooperation that should be kept at very high level. And, maturity and curiosity of what others are doing and how can we collaborate and learn from each other. Regional cooperation is key to solving joint problems since almost none of them belongs to one country only.”
