AmCham Macedonia Summer 2013 (issue 38) - Page 27

PAST EVENTS Cocktail in Honor of DAS Reeker On June 17, 2013 AmCham Macedonia hosted a cocktail in honor of Phillip Reeker, Deputy Assistant Secretary and former U.S. Ambassador to Macedonia. During his stay in Macedonia, DAS Reeker met with President Ivanov, Prime Minister Gruevski, Deputy Prime Minister for European Integration Fatmir Besimi, SDSM President Zoran Zaev, and other government and community leaders. His interaction with AmCham Macedonia’s key leaders and supporters provided him with a more candid and holistic picture of the current state of affairs in the country. The gathering was another sign of support from both Macedonia’s current Ambassador Wohlers and DAS Reeker, who have been great backers of AmCham Macedonia and U.S. business interests in the country generally over the years.
