Zoran Stavreski, the Deputy Prime Minister of Macedonia, visited Bournemouth University today to discuss opportunities for future collaboration between BU and Macedonia.

The Deputy PM met with Vice–Chancellor John Vinney and other members of the University Executive Team to discuss an exciting new project in Macedonia called 'Education City', and the possibility of long term cooperation with the University.

At the end of the discussion Mr Stavreski was presented with a Poole Pottery plate as a memento of his visit. He was then taken on a tour of the campus, looking at the brilliant facilities BU has to offer including the Queen's Anniversary Prize–winning Media School and Kimmeridge House – home to BU’s state–of–the–art lecture theatres and seminar rooms.

John Vinney, BU's Vice–Chancellor, said of the visit, "It was an honour to welcome Mr Stavreski and his party to Bournemouth University today. Education City is an exciting and interesting initiative from the Macedonian Government and I look forward to further discussions as Macedonia's plans evolve."
