For the second time I have shared with you my time and knowledge in framework of this good initiative. With 100 leaders who have participated in this program on the last 3 years, I am confident Macedonia will continue to move into the right path.

It has been an honor and a privilege for me to address the participants of your School for Young Leaders. This is a wonderful event. You and your staff should be congratulated on your initiative and the organization of this school which was more than needed. I spoke about leadership on international relations and I believe that the young leaders really liked it. A lot of questions were asked , orally and in writhing. I was very happy to find three of my former students among the participants. Many success with this school and in general.

To have become a lecturer of your Young Leaders School is one of the greatest honors I could ever have achieved. I have enjoyed the lecture time, I have learned a lot as well… I want to thank you very much for the initiative! Be sure that the future of Macedonia is guaranteed with a youth like this: brave, intelligent, with positive attitude, open-minded… No doubt that they will do something big for the country, because the soul of Macedonia is the soul of its citizens.
