Last year’s testimonials

Another successful Macedonia 2025 Summit! Euromax is proud to be a great supporter of such a distinguished organization, dedicated to helping create a stronger nation and prosperous economic climate in Macedonia.
- Euromax Resources
It was a very enlightening summit and I learned a lot. Thank you very much from the very bottom of my heart for providing me with this opportunity.
- Shuichi Fukuda, Professor of System Design and Management, Keio University (Tokyo)
I would like to thank you for an experience that was more than perfect. Every aspect of the summit was so well thought over and executed with distinction. It was one of the best conventions that I have ever participated in, and I have a firm belief that it would lead to many fantastic collaborations between Israel and Macedonia. We will definitely keep in touch, and I'm looking forward to see you in the very near future.
- Michael Mizrahi, Director of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Development at Azrieli College, and Director of AtoBe
There cannot be a better way of helping the country then by investing in the education of capable people who are going to oversee and compel the business sector in Macedonia and help the country develop. Macedonia2025 provides ways for motivated people to expand their education and give everything they have to contribute to the overall situation in the country and from within the country. At the same time it lobbies among influential business people around the world. If you only knew how many successful Macedonians there are around the world, who are prepared to give for free their knowledge and help us, you wouldn't be so indifferent! I want to thank everyone for their selfless dedication. With that kind of attitude we should expect change. By commenting, making general conclusions and by simply attacking political figures, we are never going to achieve the desired outcomes. Helping build a stronger nation!
- Mitko Andonov, Kolid Macedonia
I would like to thank you and your team from the Macedonia 2025 office in Skopje for a most professional and well organized Summit. I attended the Summit in Ohrid in October 2012, and that was quite excellent; however the October 2016 Summit has set a new level of excellence. I must say that I found the whole arrangement to be most enjoyable. I was particularly impressed with the quality of the presentations. They covered many different aspects and subjects of business; and for those of us who were not involved in every subject they were informative and most enlightening. Once again, a most successful event and I am already looking forward to next year’s Summit.
