The research was done on the basis of data that municipalities and ministries have the web pages but also respond some of the questionnaires concentrated on few segments and approach to all the information, services and budget and financial transparency.

The center for citizen communications is an NGO founded in 2005 which the Municipality of Shtip along with the “Info-center” collaborated on the drafting of strategies and programs for communications, for which we express our gratitude. The survey was prepared by two former journalists who are now a part of the Center for citizen communication, German Filkov and Sabina Fakikj together with Marko Mitevski.

The appreciation that Shtip has for the past 6 years on the plan of transparency is resulting from greater openness to citizens and the media and the introduced principles of cooperation and contacts with the media and the public. From August 29th until December 31st 2016, it means 7 years and 4 months are published over 1450 electronic bulletin sent over 9,000 text messages to journalists, there are over 250 statements, more than 150 press releases were issued and service information, held over 250 press conference and briefings for reporters, from 2011 to 2016 prepared 2 strategies for communications and 5 annual programs for communication and a completely redesigned internet (web) page of Muncipality Shtip with all the needed informations for services of the local government.

Of course, this level of transparency and this assessment won’t be possible without participation and support of the new colleague journalists from Shtip, the region including the correspondent network which continuously worked for the municipality and thank them for their cooperation.
