THE MUNICIPALITIES OF KARPOŠ (MK) AND FLEURY-SUR-ORNE (F) OFFICIALISED THEIR PARTNERSHIP (Lower Normandy-Macedonia decentralised cooperation programme)



Within the framework of the decentralised cooperation between the Republic of Macedonia and the Lower Normandy Region, the Macedonian municipality of Karpoš was welcomed in Fleury-sur-Orne, a commune of the Lower Normandy Region. The objective of the visit was to reinforce the partnership established during the first encounter in July 2012 in Macedonia and to identify fields of mutual interest for future cooperation.

During the visit, the Macedonian delegation discovered the commune of Fleury-sur-Orne and the way the administration operates and afterwards visited the cultural and historical monuments as well as the infrastructure of Flery-sur-Orne. Furthermore, the Macedonian delegation was welcomed by Sabine Guichet-Lebailly, Head of the Service of International Cooperation and Mobility in the Regional Council of Lower Normandy.
After several work sessions, a strong will for cooperation was demonstrated and several major fields of cooperation were defined: culture, local economic development, youth, social protection, energy efficiency. As a result of the fruitful work, Fleury-sur-Orne and Karpoš signed Protocol of Intentions on 18 December 2012 which reinforced and officialised their partnership. Correspondingly, Fleury-sur-Orne and Karpoš will soon start to implement their first joint activity.
Town twinning as a segment in the decentralised cooperation between Lower Normandy and Macedonia builds up contacts and friendship with communities from the two territories and promotes better understanding. The Programme for Decentralised cooperation is coordinated by ALDA, the Association of Local Democracy Agencies.
