Fostering Prosperous Relations: Serbia And Slovenia’s Path To Mutual Success

The success of relations between Serbia and Slovenia can be attributed, among other things, to both countries’ progress in establishing robust political institutions and market economies, leading to mutually beneficial partnerships. In order to further enhance their collaboration, Serbia should prioritise accelerating its EU integration process with Slovenian support and assistance

In the book Why Nations Fail, economists Daron Acemoglu and James A. Robinson argue that a nation’s wealth and prosperity depend on its political and economic institutions, rather than on external factors like climate or geography. Strong and inclusive institutions, such as a well-functioning government and market system, facilitate investment and provide a sense of security. This leads to economic growth and development, as both domestic and foreign investors are encouraged to allocate resources efficiently. Transparent legal frameworks, property rights and fair market competition attract foreign businesses, as well as fostering collaboration and prosperous relations between countries.

The success of bilateral relations between Serbia and Slovenia can be attributed to the establishment of mutually beneficial partnerships and collaborations based on their progress in creating good political institutions and market economies, albeit with varying degrees of success and at varying tempos. As a result, there has been a positive impact on trade, exchanges of knowledge and cultural understanding between the two countries.

However, there is still room to improve these successful collaborations. Various stakeholders offer insights into how to achieve further progress. Slovenia’s ambassador to Serbia, Damjan Bergant, has expressed Slovenia’s willingness to assist Serbia on its path to EU integration. In order to achieve this end, Serbia needs to overcome obstacles that hinder its accession.

As suggested by other interlocutors, in terms of economic relations, Serbia can create a more favourable investment environment by reducing administrative barriers, streamlining procedures and clarifying laws. Furthermore, efforts aimed at strengthening the rule of law and the struggle against corruption, while enhancing personal and business legal security, will deepen bilateral cooperation between the two countries.

Additionally, increased investment in Serbia’s infrastructure would attract investors, while providing more support to small and medium-sized enterprises and enhancing Serbia’s appeal as a business destination.
