Government slashes ambassadors’ salaries by 5% over crisis

The Macedonian government has slashed the salaries of the ambassadors by 5%, Macedonian Kirilica news website reports.

The payment reduction comes at the proposal of Finance Minister Zoran Stavreski and is one of the government’s measures to cushion the crisis fallout. The news website says that a 5% reduction is not a large one. The ambassadors’ salaries run to more than MKD 120,000 (MKD 61 = EUR 1) and after the slash their monthly payment will go down by some MKD 6,000.
