Macedonia, Schengen Area & Visa Liberalisation
 
Macedonia unlikely to secure visa liberalization in 2009


Skopje /14/11/ 08:38
Despite the announcements that Macedonian citizens will travel to EU countries without visa as of mid-2009, the country will have to wait for visa liberalization until 2010, local daily said on Friday.

Dnevnik daily claims the delay in the European Commission's preliminary report on implementation of requirements contained in the roadmaps for visa liberalization is the main reason for the delay of the entire process.

The lengthy procedure of transfer of a country from the black Schengen list, including the European Parliament elections slated for June 2009, will prolong the deadline for visa liberalization, the paper said.

Dnevnik correspondent in Brussels said visa liberalization for the Western Balkans is not a popular theme in France and Germany amid fears that other countries might follow in footsteps of the Balkans, seeking visa-free travel. /end/ /vs/

I suspect it will take another 100 years before this happens if we wait for France and Germany to make a decision about it.

Macedonia joins European Patent Organization
 
[quote]Macedonia has become a member of the European Patent Organization (EPO), as EPO membership is one of the country's obligations before joining the European Union.

Agency for Intellectual Property "Berin" announced on Thursday that Macedonia has already ratified the European Patent Convention.

Macedonia's accession into EPO would allow domestic companies and individual inventors to extend protection of their inventions throughout the territory of 27 EU member-countries - plus Croatia, Iceland, Lichtenstein, Monaco, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey - through single patent application.

This means that Macedonian companies will no longer need foreign patent representatives to the European Patent Institute, as they can submit their applications directly to Intellectual Property Agency "Berin" or to other Macedonian patent representative to the European Patent Institute in Munich.

A positive step.

I wonder if it has joined as F.Y.R.O.M ?

I mean given what that country is prepared to do to join an organization that negates it - I wouldn't be surprised.

Yes, as....The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia has ratified the European Patent Convention and will become a member of the European Patent Organisation on 1 January 2009.

You are very right.

Although I welcome the participating of Macedonia within Europe, but it should be rightious use its officially name Republic of Macedonia.

Iam afraid the Greek lobby in Europe will block the name use for a very, very long time.

I think what would be a great step in benefiting Macedonia, is if in Western Europe, especially in Germany, Holland and the UK some kind of an organisation could be established were Macedonians and West-Europeans participating in promoting the Macedonian right on use its name; a some kind of Macedonian friendship alliance. :)

Not all Western Europeans is buying the Greek propaganda falsified crap ;)
