Macedonia, as part of the Western Balkans, will receive Covid-19 vaccines from Austria, which will set aside five percent of its own doses of vaccines for the countries in the region, Austrian Ambassador to the country Georg Voutsas said in his New Year’s greetings.

We are optimistic about the new 2021. Austria supports Macedonia with urgently needed medical supplies. Austria will also make available 5% of its own doses of Covid-19 vaccines against. The European Union would not be complete without the integration of the Western Balkans, and that is why Austria, within the integration process, is committed to holding the first intergovernmental conference in 2021 as soon as possible, he said.
