While on the national level, meetings were organized on 15 May in both countries by the Government and the EC Delegations, the regional consultation was organized through written communication. Both Macedonian and Bosnian civil society representatives were disappointed to find out, that the presented projects are in the final stage of programming without much possibility to change these, although the EC/Delegations remained open for written feedback by end of May.
Macedonian Center for International Cooperation (MCIC) together with 8 CSOs has submitted written comments on 29 May.
OneWorldSEE service BiH offers further information on BiH progress on consultations.
BCSDN has also submitted its comments to the Multi-beneficiary IPA 2008 list of projects (Component I).
