The United States and the Republic of Macedonia have initialed the U.S.-Macedonia Open Skies air transport agreement ("the Agreement"). The Agreement, which will be applied on the basis of comity and reciprocity pending its entry into force, will liberalize our bilateral aviation relationship.
This agreement strengthens and expands our already strong trade and tourism links with Macedonia, and will benefit American and Macedonian businesses and travelers. It will expand air service and encourage vigorous price competition by airlines, while safeguarding aviation safety and security.
