Team Europe: fighting the pandemic and infodemic in Western Balkans, including North Macedonia

North Macedonia

The European Union has continued to support Western Balkans partners in mitigating the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and providing accurate information about the spread of the virus. In mobilising a substantial recovery package and involving the region in EU programmes, the EU has confirmed its commitment to assist Western Balkans partners in these times of crisis.


As High Representative / Vice President Josep Borrell said: ”This is a time for solidarity, and it is a priority for the EU to support the Western Balkans, as part of our European family, in facing the impact of the pandemic.”


In July, the EU signed a Memorandum of Understanding with North Macedonia to pave the way for the disbursement of €80 million in macro-financial assistance to mitigate the severe negative socio-economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic. The country has continued to receive medical equipment, including face masks.
