On 25-26 June a delegation of the All-Party Group for Macedonia from the UK Parliament is paying a visit to the Republic of Macedonia.

The delegation consists of: Karen Lumley MP Conservative, Stuart Andrew MP Conservative, Clive Betts MP Labour and Gemma Doyle MP Labour.

In the course of the visit the delegation is meeting the President of the Parliament of the Republic of Macedonia Trajko Veljanoski, Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, and Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikola Poposki. The delegation is also meeting representatives of the political parties, business representatives, civil society and media.

The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Macedonia works on promotion of political and cultural relations between the UK and Macedonia and furthering each government’s understanding of the other.

All-Party Parliamentary Groups are informal cross-party groups that have no official status within Parliament. They are essentially run by and for Members of the Commons and Lords, although many groups involve individuals and organisations from outside Parliament in their administration and activities.

You can get updates of the visit on our Facebook page or the twitter channel @ukinmacedonia of the British Embassy.
