BIG HUMANITARIAN TASTY PICNIC IN THE CITY PARK IN SKOPJE

The Foreign Investors Council and the Economic Chamber of Macedonia organized the fourth edition of the traditional event dubbed “World Picnic” in the City Park in Skopje.

As an interesting idea, originating from the companies themselves, the “World Picnic” is a blend of entertaining and socially beneficial activities via which we get to know foreign investors in the country in an informal manner. After the great success of the last years’ “World Picnics”, we continue to maintain the idea to promote the positive effects of the foreign investors on the national economy with an informal gathering and representation of the culture of the countries they come from via the most authentic recipes of their national cuisines, as well as the other cultural characteristics.

The visitors to the “World Picnic” had the possibility to taste the traditional food of about twelve countries the foreign investors in the country come from- members of the Foreign Investors Council from: Austria, Belgium, Great Britain, Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, the US, Slovenia, Turkey and Switzerland.

-   Via the “World Picnic” that takes place for the fourth time, the Foreign Investors Council shows appreciation of the foreign investors. The picnic is a result of the cooperation between the foreign companies and is an excellent possibility to get to know the culture of the countries these companies come from, while the national cuisines are just one of the ways to get closer to the Macedonian citizens. The foreign investors in Macedonia offer jobs, but they also offer trainings and qualifications for their employees while applying state-of-the-art methods and projects. Not only do we change the working culture in Macedonia, but with this event we would also like to bring the culture of the countries the foreign investors come from closer to the Macedonian citizens- stated Stefan Peter, president of the Foreign Investors Council within the Economic Chamber of Macedonia.

The big humanitarian tasty picnic in the City Park in Skopje offered contents for the whole family, with a lot of music, entertainment and fun activities for kids.

The Macedonian citizens and representatives of the business community had a possibility to get to know different tastes of the international cuisines and to enjoy the music of the band “The Chicks” and were part of the humanitarian side of the event because the food was served for a symbolic price of 100 denars, and the collected money will be donated to the PHI Institution for rehabilitation of hear loss, speech and voice damage- Bitola

- The sensory room will be beneficial for the children with sensory disintegration and it will help the most to the people with autism in the process of their rehabilitation. This donation will contribute to further equipping of our Institution in the direction of providing better conditions for our children and the companies showed their social responsibility in the best manner, by organizing such a humanitarian event- stated Divna Zhivoradikj Najdovska, director of PHI Institution for rehabilitation of hear loss, speech and voice damage- Bitola.

In this manner, the benefits for the community are multifold and are composed of bringing the foreign investors closer to the citizens with their culture and tradition via the traditional food in an informal manner, in a relaxed atmosphere, with music, entertainment and animation of different interesting groups of visitors, including the children, representatives of companies, media and the citizens in general, but also the humanitarian dimension of the event is far more important and beneficial, which shows the firm commitment of the foreign investors to be an example of corporate responsibility and thoughtful work.
