2023 marks the 30th anniversary of the partnership between North Macedonia and the World Bank Group. On February 25, 1993, the country signed the Articles of Agreement with three out of five organizations that make up the World Bank Group – the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), the International Development Association (IDA) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC). Since the first project for North Macedonia was approved in 1994 to finance the country’s robust economic reform program, the World Bank has been supporting North Macedonia’s economic and social development. Since 1994, the World Bank has approved 100 projects in North Macedonia totaling $2.2 billion. Over the years, the World Bank's program in North Macedonia has aimed to support faster growth, enhance competitiveness, and ensure inclusive development.

To mark this anniversary, the event entitled Investing in People: Making Aging Work For North Macedonia will discuss how to make investments in human capital work toward a more prosperous future for people in the country. The conference gathers government officials and policy makers, representatives of development partners and international community, academia, private sector, think tanks, and civil society.
