In the process of adjustments they are also preparing for new European funds that will be available as soon the negotiation proceses will start and also when the country will become a full member of European Union. Macedonia is a candidate state and due to the name dispute its still only a candidate for membership for EU but its still haven’t open the negitiations with European Union.
