On Wednesday, March 22, AmCham Macedonia in cooperation with the Macedonian Institute for Media (MIM), organized a Mixer with Business Journalists.
More than 40 member company leaders, corporate communications professionals and working journalists had an opportunity to expand their social and professional network. MIM’s Director, Biljana Petkovska, noted the challenge of gaining interest in and space for business issues, given the protracted political crisis in the country, but said there was a need for greater links between journalists and business people. AmCham’s Executive Director, Michelle Osmanli, presented AmCham’s 2016-2018 advocacy priorities and said that leading companies had an interest in better informing and raising expectations of the general public on appropriate business conduct.
Many attendees expressed the hope that increased cooperation between the two organizations will increase knowledge exchange and other mutually-beneficial results throughout the year.
