Skopje, October 6-8, 2023

Our last meeting took place in Skopje, Macedonia from 6th to 10th October 2023. Our colleagues Aleksandar Kchev and Mishko Radosavljevik from Bonafide Law put together a wonderful and informative weekend in their home country. 

On the first day, we observed some interesting welcome talks on the topic of AI and law. Sonja Anastasova, an associate of Bona Fide Law gave us insight into the EU AI Act and the many unanswered questions when it comes to legally regulating AI. Afterwards, we heard from Filip Petrovski, the CEO of Data Masters, who talked about AI, data and its usage from a business perspective. Lastly, Svetislav Smilkov from ARC AUTOMOTIVE, INC. educated our members on the technological development zones in North Macedonia. This was followed by an amazing dinner at a traditional Macedonian restaurant. 

On the next day, our general meeting took place, where we had a very productive discussion about the future of our network. Afterwards, we had the incredible opportunity to explore North Macedonia’s renowned Tikves Winery. We started with an enlightening tour, delving into the intricate process of winemaking, which was followed by a delicious four-course dinner paired with exquisite wine tastings.
