Bulgaria, Macedonia to seek funding for Corridor 8 road, railway project


Bulgaria and Macedonia plan to seek international financing for sections of Corridor 8 road and railway project on their territories, Bulgarian public radio broadcaster BNR reported on Thursday.
Pan-European transport Corridor 8 stretches from Albania's Adriatic port of Durres to Varna, on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast, via Macedonia.

Macedonian prime minister Zoran Zaev will visit Sofia on December 6-7 for a meeting of Western Balkan leaders with representatives of international financial institutions, at which funding opportunites for Corridor 8 will be discussed, BNR said.

In August, the ministers of transport and energy of Bulgaria and Macedonia signed memorandum of understanding for completion of the construction of a railway link between the capital cities of the two countries, Sofia and Skopje.
