Macedonia and the Netherlands sign agreement for cooperation

On February 26th the Macedonian Agency for Real Estate and Cadastre (AREC) and the Dutch Cadastre, Land Registry and Mapping Agency (Kadaster) signed a cooperation agreement to work on improvement on land administration.

Strengthening institutional and organisational capacity

The two institutions have been collaborating for over 10 years in multiple projects on different topics. The renewal of the cooperation agreement aims at strengthening the institutional and organisational capacity. The focus will be on the exchange of best practices in innovative areas like 3D Cadastre, automatic generalisation of topographic maps and the operational implementation of the national geoportal. On a strategic level, AREC and Kadaster will also discuss how to best address the opportunities and challenges of both organisations.

International experience

AREC and Kadaster perform similar responsibilities for the development and maintenance of efficient land administration, including the responsibilities for the National Spatial Data Infrastructure. Both organisations recognise the need to provide reliable land information services to society for the development of Macedonia.

The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Skopje, Macedonia, encourages the cooperation between the two organisations.
