During the international business conference Macedonia Manufacturing Expo 2019, the Macedonian Association of Metal and Electrical Industry MAMEI signed an MoU with the Directorate for Technological industrial development zones. In the MoU, signed by the president of MAMEI – Ms. Marta Naumovska-Grnarova and the director of DTIDZ – Mr. Aleksandar Mladenovski, several points were listed for potential cooperation.
The memorandum outlined promoting cooperation between the members of MAMEI and the users of services offered by the Directorate, coordinated joint presentations for investment opportunities before foreign and national subjects, joint organizing of business and educational events of interest to the companies, as well as joint participation in business events and fairs.
During Macedonia Manufacturing Expo 2019, MAMEI also signed memorandums of understanding with two institutions of higher learning – the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies and the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the “St. Cyril and Methodius” University of Skopje. These MoUs, signed officially during the opening of the second day at MME with the deans of both faculties, would serve as a basis for promotion of the Macedonian industry among students in the two faculties, as well as for securing summer internships and practices for students in MAMEI member-companies. The memorandums also affirmed the possibility for joint participation on international projects, and joint organization of educational events of interest to the Association and the faculties of engineering.
By signing the three MoUs, together with the one already signed with the vocational high school SUGS “EMUC 8mi septemvri” in May, MAMEI expanded the collaboration possibilities of its members and the industry at-large with public institutions, with which they share common goals and interests.
