Like many countries around the globe, N. Macedonia is currently experiencing a period of deeply divided society on many different fronts and strong developmental challenges. The Platform for Prosperous Future proposes an approach to bring together all stakeholders and to foster alignment on the key priorities for long-term growth i.e. prosperous future of N. Macedonia. Converge to the EU living standard is the overarching goal of every citizen, business person, policymaker, and this can only be achieved though advances in seven key areas: Education and Human Capital; Competitiveness (and Doing Business); Rule of Law and Corruption; Democratic Society; Environment; Public Governance; Digitalization and Digital Skills. Macedonia2025 outlines the context of each of these areas, and proposes a set of goals and actions for creating a prosperous future for the country. Finally, we offer a tool to track the country’s progress towards achieving the basic building blocks and requirements for faster economic growth and prosperity – the Country Dashboard. It is a simple way to track the progress of the country over time and in comparison with our peers in the main areas discussed in this Platform.
Macedonia2025 aims to play a constructive role in the implementation of this Platform, in the capacity of a partner, leader, and participant.
