ZAGREB, August 26, 2019 – The Croatian Civil Aviation Agency (HACZ) will be the project promoter of the “Support for participation in the ECAA – European Common Aviation Area” twinning project valued at 250,000 euro that will provide assistance and expertise to aviation authorities in North Macedonia, the HACZ reported on Monday.
The EU Delegation to North Macedonia last week announced that the HACZ would be the project promoter following the evaluation of bids submitted at an international tender, the HACZ noted.
The project is aimed at providing expertise and assistance to North Macedonia’s civil aviation authorities in an effort to support the sustainable development of civil aviation in accordance with international standards and EU legal acquis in that field.
That will be achieved by aligning national legislation with European laws and increasing North Macedonia’s aviation capacities and technical competence.
“The HACZ’s international success as a partner to Macedonia’s aviation authorities in this project is yet another recognition of its successful work so far and confirmation of the HACZ’s institutional status within the framework of the relevant civil aviation authorities in the EU,” the HACZ said.
The agency underlined that over the past ten years it has developed into a respectable and desired partner in the EU, primarily due to its human resources potential and value, and this has been confirmed with a successfully completed twinning project with Georgia in 2015-2017, when HACZ was a junior partner to the Austro Control GmbH in the implementation of that project.
