HR-Net Notice, 96-03-05
As of today, the "Macedonian Information Centre" (M.I.C.) in Skopje, FYROM
has discontinued the free distribution of its daily bulletin in English.
Since HR-Net distributes only freely available information, and does not
charge its users, we can no longer retransmit the MIC bulletins.
This leaves only the "Macedonian Information Liaison Service" (M.I.L.S.) as
a means of monitoring developments in the FYROM in English.
Following is the notice circulated by MIC over the past few days, which
includes contact information for those who may wish to buy their

Subject: MAK-NEWS 05/03/96 (M.I.C.)
Allow me to inform You that the Macedonian Information Center
(MIC) starting from 5th of March is no longer able to distribute
the English version of its general daily service INFOMAC via E-
mail to the MAK NEWS subscribers' list.
The reasons for this are neither of a political nor any other
nature, but simply - financial. At the beginning of our
existence, with the establishment of the MIC and World Macedonian
Congress offices in Skopje, which grew in parallel with the
independence of the Republic of Macedonia, we felt it was
necessary to keep the world informed about our independent and
The time has come when we feel it is necessary to place
professionalism in the forefront, and to replace enthusiasm by a
serious work approach - to produce the news with top
professionalism, to speed up distribution, and to establish
various analytical issues, as well as issues dealing with
business and economy. The interest in this, judging bu the
message we receive every day, following the lifting of the two
embargoes (Greece and Yugoslavia) has grown rapidly.
Therefore, we will have to gradually adapt to the principles of
market economy, due to the fact that in the last 12 months, we
have been forced to sustain the Macedonian Information Center
independently, in which we are succeeding. However, in view of
the fact that MIC and the World Macedonian Congress will be
moving to new offices from March 1, this year, and that following
this move, our working costs will increase 20 percent, we are
forced to face reality and to take this unpopular measure.
Still, not everything is lost. All those who wish to continue
receiving the daily INFOMAC service on their E-mail address are
invited to contact our E-mail address: email@example.com or to contact
us on one of our telephone no.: + 389 91 221 842, + 389 91 117
876, +389 91 117 834 so as to receive information in relation to
subscription, manner of payment and service prices.
As of March 1, our Skopje address will be the following:
Macedonian Information Center
Elisie Popovski 10/22
91 000 Skopje
Republic of Macedonia
We hope this change will be met with understanding and that we
can look forward to successful cooperation in the future.
MIC - Manager
