Macedonia and China to ink air agreement

Macedonia and China are preparing to sign a bilateral Air Service Agreement after the two sides met for talks in Skopje last week. A senior delegation from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) presented a draft text of the agreement which will now be reviewed by their Macedonian counterparts. On the other hand, the Macedonian Civil Aviation Agency proposed for the signing of a Memorandum for Technical Cooperation. The two sides are seeking to establish the legal framework for the potential launch of scheduled flights, promote cooperation between aviation authorities, as well as promote technical and educational support. The two agreed that the establishment of flights would help boost tourism and people-to-people exchange.
