The Armed Forces of the Republic of Macedonia (ARM) received USD1.4 million from the United States on 5 December to set up a simulation centre (SC).

Established within the ARM's Training and Doctrine Command, the centre is located at Alekso Demnievski-Bauman military barracks in Veles.

The SC will help train ARM commands and headquarters up to the brigade level. It will also provide the possibility to network the ARM with other regional simulation centres.
