The Ambassador of the United States to the Republic of Macedonia, His Excellency Jess Baily, paid a visit to Goce Delcev University in Stip. During the visit, the Ambassador Bailey met with the Rector of the University, Professor Dr Blazho Boev, and the vice-rectors Professor Dejan Mirakovski and Professor Dr Kiril Barbareev. After the meeting, the US Ambassador Jess Bailey stated he was pleased to be at the University Goce Delcev today:
“Before I came out to Macedonia I said that one of my most important goals is to strengthen the relationships between universities and between students. Every University around the world is trying to become a part of the global system, and it is very important for students to build exchange practices with colleagues not only in the region but also worldwide. I am proud that the Embassy has been able to cooperate with UGD in several different areas, and we are including the Faculty of Law, which I will visit today. We also cooperate in the field of science and in several ongoing projects about which the rector informed me. Therefore, I see it as an important role mine and that of the Embassy to build connections between our countries and between our universities. So the future of our countries lies in more effective collaboration, the more effective the communication, the stronger our partnership will become.”
Rector Boev noted that it is a great honor for UGD to have the US Ambassador Jess Bailey visiting UGD:
“It is a great pleasure for us to have the opportunity to discuss with Ambassador Baily about the cooperation with the American universities, and in general about our involvement in the area of education, science and research. On his behalf, the Ambassador expressed his pleasure to be a guest to our University, which he considers as one of the better universities in the Republic of Macedonia, and he believes that a better form of cooperation should be achieved with the American universities. Today, he will deliver a lecture to the students of the Faculty of Law, as part of the cooperation we have established with the US Embassy in the Republic Macedonia and I think that in the future we will deepen this cooperation in terms of research, cooperation with universities, exchange of students; our students will go to the US and US students will come to UGD. I think this visit is a good occasion to continue our cooperation since Mr. Bailey is a great friend of the Republic of Macedonia and to our University as well.”
The US Ambassador to Macedonia, His Excellency Jess Bailey, held a lecture to the students of the Faculty of Law on the elections in the USA.
