The Minister of Transport and Communications of the Government of the Republic of Macedonia, Mr.Goran Sugareski, during his introductory speech pointed out that Macedonia is included in several major construction investments financed partly or wholly by European and world lenders, which means FIDIC contracts are extremely important for the work of Macedonian construction companies involved in the realization of all these current and future projects.
Mr.Enrico Vink, Executive Director of FIDIC, stressed that the entry of ACEMA into the global FIDIC family would mean the opportunity to improve the situation in the engineering consulting sector in Macedonia, as well as the access of the domestic construction companies to the best practices and models of the most commonly used standard forms of international construction contracts in the world.
He added that the main postulates of FIDIC, ie its members, are integrity, quality and sustainability.
During the conference, the member of the Board of Directors of ACEMA and the manager for FIDIC contracts and claims for damages in AD Granit, Mr.Denis Rizaov spoke, emphasizing that the realization of construction projects according to FIDIC contract models actually reduces the likelihood of possible disputes and claims for damages from one of the contracting parties.
Ms. Andrea Shehic, Executive Director of ACES Serbia as guest speaker introduced the participants of the Conference with FIDIC in the neighboring countries, possibilities for cooperation and willingness to support the activities of ACEMA.
The Conference was attended by more than 250 participants from the government institutions, universities, local government representatives, biggest construction companies in the country, contractors, engineers, law offices, and other representatives involved in construction and engineering projects.
