The Greek and FYROM state telecoms organizations on Thursday signed a contract granting Hellenic Telecommunications Organization (OTE) a mobile phone permit in the neighboring country, after winning a state tender for the license.
According to officials, the 25 million dollar contract gives OTE the exploitation rights for the second mobile telephony network in FYROM.
The 22-year agreement was signed in Skopje by OTE vice-president George Skarpelis and FYROM minister for transport and communication Ljubco Balkoski.
The second mobile telephone network is slated to begin operating in the spring of 2002.
