WSA had the great pleasure to meet Macedonian Minister Ivo Ivanovski for an interview on his insights of governmental partnering with the WSA. Minister Ivanovski is a great supporter of the WSA. Asked on where he sees the benefits for governments, he states: “The main benefit for a government is to share their experience and to see what others are doing. Especially what the bright new entrepreneurs are doing in order to come up with solutions how their mobile applications can contribute to the MDG’s.
