To this date no one in four #WesternBalkan countries recieved a #CovidVaccine:

#BiH🇧🇦, #Kosovo🇽🇰, #Montenegro🇲🇪 & #NorthMacedonia🇲🇰

Many rightfully ask why

In #BiH, for example, authorities relied on #COVAX, #EU🇪🇺 procurement mechanism patience of citizens (?!)👇🏼
Following an agreement of BiH governments in charge for health matters by November 2020 state level authorities (kind of) finalised paperwork to be able to order 1,232,000 dosis of vaccines via #COVAX + 892.000 dosis via an #EU procurement mechanism.…
Already in December 2020 authorities in #BiH made it clear they had no plans to try to negotiate, lobby & get vaccines via direct purchase. They defended their decision by claiming it is safer & cheaper (+legal) to wait & hoped citizens would be patient.…

Let's start a #Serbian & #Yugoslav map thread.
Here I'll share the best material I compiled over 3 years about the #History of #Serbia & #Yugoslavia.
Let's start with a map of companies implanted in SFR.Yugoslavia.🏭
57 are detailed in the link provided.👇… Image
2. Here comes a #Yugoslav map for foodies.
Unlike for companies, the destruction of #Yugoslavia didn't change the local specialties, which remain the delight of all locals & visitors.
#Meatlovers are like fish in water there, & back in #France I dearly miss ćevap & pljeskavica!🥺 Image
3. Here are 2 pseudo #tourism-maps of #Yugoslavia, respectively made by locals & #Americans.
I wish we helped, as requested, to conserve & protect this #beauty.🕯️
As a citizen of a #NATO country, & especially as a #French, I'm sorry we didn't, even if most of this still exists.🙏 ImageImage

Today we present Economic & Investment plan for #WesternBalkans to boost economic development & recovery of the region. We will mobilise up to €9 billion of funding for investment flagships in transport, energy, green & digital transition, to create sustainable growth and jobs.
In addition, investment capacity of the region should be boosted by mobilisation of a new #WesternBalkans Guarantee Facility, w ambition to potentially raise investments of up to €20 billion. Plan will increase grants compared to loans, as region’s fiscal space is limited.
The Plan also offers a path for a successful regional economic integration to help accelerate convergence, ultimately speeding up process of #EU integration. This plan should help to transform #WesternBalkans into one of the most attractive region for investments in the world.

Interesting read about #EmmanuelMacron's vision for Europe and concept of European power, by @RymMomtaz via @POLITICOEurope.
A few comments in this thread👇 #IamEuropean 🇪🇺…
"The idea was to create a strategy of influence, which means we can [...] write papers with other countries." Then why don't you? Why the total opposition to #Spitzenkandidat and not reform it? Why the solo position on #NorthMacedonia? Or the solo tribune before #EUelections?
"[Macron] established the @RenewEurope group in the European Parliament; positioned close allies at the helm of the ECB and European Council." But where is #France in the Directorate-Generals? Or as "DirCab"? Where is all the middle management that Germany has groomed patiently?

We must answer the call of European citizens by showing that it is possible to build a more sustainable planet for our children while preserving the competitiveness of our firms & protecting our workers and the most vulnerable citizens, said @JosephDaul at @EPPGroup Study Days Image
@JosephDaul @EPPGroup Reconnecting with the youth must be an EPP priority. We need to convince them that complex questions do not have simple answers. Our solutions can offer them a secure future & better quality of life, said @JosephDaul at #EPPZagreb
@JosephDaul @EPPGroup Failing to open the accession talks with #NorthMacedonia & #Albania was a strategic error. We must give the #WesternBalkan countries a clear European perspective while they continue implementing the necessary reforms, said @JosephDaul at @EPPGroup Study Days at #EPPZagreb

On #Albania & #NorthMacedonia: I understand the criticism against #Macron, but would like to put forward a few thoughts that might not be popular /1
In the long-run, are we serious about enlarging to a country such as #Albania that still has a very long way to go to reach Copenhagen criteria? EU accession talks surely an instrument for change, but: /2
Let’s not forget that opening accession talks also means that the hopes are high for populations in 🇦🇱 & 🇲🇰 for EU membership. If it never happens, backlash risk should not be underestimated. /3

It's official, the Head of State of 13% of the EU population (with a 33% approval rate at home) can successfully block the remaining 87%. This is not a win for #France, this is a cruel loss for #Europe and #democracy.
#NorthMacedonia #Albania #Macron…
This lack of #democracy and efficiency is everything citizens came to hate about the #EU: it takes all to agree, but only one to block. *National* leaders, thinking of their *national* electorate and taking *European* decisions.
#NorthMacedonia #Albania #Macron #IamEuropean
Today #France opposes accession talks for #NorthMacedonia and #Albania. Tomorrow it will act surprised that Ireland opposes anti-tax evasion measures, Germany opposes an EU army, or Finland opposes a large EU budget. To each his own and no one for #Europe; that's what this is.

As I return from Sofia and Belgrade, I am comforted in the idea that the whole of Southeastern #Europe has its place in the #EU.
After #Romania, #Bulgaria and #Croatia, it is high time to open accession talks with #NorthMacedonia and #Albania.…
The @EU_Commission and a large majority of national governments support accession talks with #NorthMacedonia and #Albania. Yet #France is blocking this process. If he is truly committed to #Europe, @EmmanuelMacron must allow these talks to proceed. #IamEuropean
@EU_Commission @EmmanuelMacron #France and Minister @AdeMontchalin single-handedly turned down 3 EU proposals to open accession talks for #NorthMacedonia and #Albania. At the time when the US reneges on its allies, we must be true to our word and be a source of hope for our neighbours and fellow Europeans.
