SKOPJE (N. Macedonia), November 22 (SeeNews) - North Macedonia's e-commerce association said that it will launch a regional platform for e-commerce information in the Central European Free Trade Agreement (CEFTA) countries with the support of German development agency Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ).
The regional platform will represent an expansion of an e-commerce platform launched for the North Macedonian market in 2020 to the other CEFTA countries, namely Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia and Kosovo, the Macedonian E-Commerce Association said in a statement on Friday.
GIZ is supporting the platform through its regional project Open Regional Fund – Foreign Trade.
"The platform will be a practical center with resources and information on key aspects of e-commerce for all countries," Nina Angelovska, president of the Macedonian E-Commerce Association said in the statement.
The Macedonian E-Commerce Association is a non-profit organisation formed in 2017 which focuses on supporting the interests of local e-commerce companies.
CEFTA is a trade agreement between non-EU countries, members of which are now mostly located in Southeastern Europe. Once a participating country joins the EU, its CEFTA membership ends.
