American Council of Young Political Leaders

American Council of Young Political Leaders For over 50 years, ACYPL has introduced young leaders to international affairs and to each other through exchange. ACYPL was founded in 1966 and has conducted, with generous support from the US Department of State, corporations, foundations and individuals, exchange programs with 120 countries and territories.

These exchanges have produced a global network of over 8,000 alumni, including over 40 current members of the Congress, 6 sitting governors and ambassadors, cabinet ministers and parliamentarians, around the globe.

🇺🇸🇲🇰 Деновиве престојувам во Вашингтон во организација и покана на American Council of Young Political Leaders American Council of Young Political Leaders и Амбасадата на САД во Скопје каде што ги споделивме нашите искуства од политичкиот живот заедно со уште неколку политички чинители од Република Македонија. Со Стефан Богоев одржавме заедничка панел-дискусија на која ги претставивме актуелните случувања во Македонија, пописот, последиците од КОВИД пандемијата, претстојните локални избори, но она на што јас се осврнав беше проблемот со Бугарија и негирањето на нашиот идентитет и постоење од нивна страна. Пред американските алумни и другите присутни посочив дека Бугарија постојано го става под знак нашиот национален идентитет и историја и го користи како алиби за нашето блокирање за старт на преговорите со ЕУ. Оваа нивна политика на поигрување нѐ блокираше многу наврати да започнеме преговори со Европската унија, бидејќи влез во европското семејство е клучна стратешка цел на сите политички фактори во Република Македонија. Со сѐ што правиме за да почнеме старт на преговори, се чини дека сме сѐ подалеку од таа цел. Овие 4 денови имавме многу успешни дискусии каде што се запознавме и разменивме муабет со претсавници на американскиот стејт департмент со осврт на билатералните односи помеѓу САД и Македонија. Разменивме искуства со многу влијателни личности од политичкиот свет како што се регионалниот директор на IRI за Европа, Paul McCarthy, Brock D. Bierman и многу други. Во дел од нашиот престој ги посетивме познатите Arlington National Cemetery и George Washington Mount Vernon и имавме заедничка вечера со амбасадорката на САД во Македонија, Кејт Брнз.

The American Council of Young Political Leaders (AYPCL) virtual exchange with New Zealand Parliament kicked off last Friday with a session on New Zealand politics 101. The ACYPL reciprocal exchange takes place annually for New Zealand Parliamentarians and their US counterparts to explore the governance, politics, policy making, bilateral relations, culture, and geographic diversity of the host country. Usually this would include travel to the hosting country, however, this year the US delegates are learning about New Zealand virtually. Topics in this year’s programme include local democracy and national conversations; Environmental issues and climate change and foreign policy. The virtual exchange will wrap up at the end of June.
