How do you know that the taxes you pay are being spent wisely?

Here’s a question for the average person in Macedonia: how do you know that the taxes you pay are being spent wisely? It’s a simple question but actually on that’s quite difficult to answer. Some might be happy to just trust those spending your tax money.  But others will want to be more questioning.  They […]

#IWD2017: Give women the chance to succeed

Кон мојата посета на Македонија
