Media Information Agency – MIA
Медиумска Информативна Агенциjа – МИА
MIA, a state-owned public enterprise, was founded by the government as the Macedonian Information Agency in early 1998. We started producing and distributing news in Macedonian and English on Sept. 30,1998. The Albanian language news service was introduced in May 1999. Our reports have been quoted by Reuters, Associated Press, AFP, Voice of America, Deutsche Welle, and many other regional news agencies that are part of the ABNA regional network of news agencies. In April 2006, MIA was redesigned as a joint-stock company and renamed Macedonian Information Agency AD. In March 2019, in line with the Prespa Agreement, the Macedonian Information Agency changed its name to Media Information Agency.
