Come To The Largest Centre In Western Serbia

The approach of the Miloš the Great motorway to Užice will further strengthen the capacity of our city as a regional centre. We have contributed to this by creating a good business climate with the business friendly certification (BFC SEE), which has shown our commitment to continuous work on development and qualified us for the support of national institutions and donors.

STRONG BUSINESS SUPPORT

The formation of a single administrative location has made our administration faster and more efficient for the public and for industry, and we have paid special attention to supporting entrepreneurship. A business incubator has been developed which in 1,600 m2 is home to 15 companies with 120 staff. The activities supported by the incubator are productive, innovative and intellectual.

To stimulate entrepreneurship, we have reduced by 20% the municipal fee for manufacturing and for promoting a company on its business premises, while for bread and pastry production it was reduced by 50%. Through subsidies, we are encouraging successful self-employment programmes in cooperation with the National Employment Service.

MANY PLACES FOR INVESTORS

We offer investors plenty of space for business development. With the public-private partnership between Užice, the copper rolling mill AD Sevojno and Impol Seval AD, the Užice Free Zone was formed, one of 15 in Serbia, with eight companies. There are solid incentives such as duty-free import of equipment and raw materials for products intended for export, and exemption from VAT on energy.

The city of Užice also has the commercial zone Krčagovo with a large number of businesses and we are planning to build a new industrial zone with more than 30 hectares of available land at Bela Zemlja, whose greatest advantage is access to important roads on the border of Serbia, BiH and Montenegro. The construction of the Miloš the Great motorway opens new perspectives for the whole Zlatibor district. Work will soon follow to make Ponikve Airport fully operational.

In our great work for the further development of Užice, we will use the tailwind of all the reforms, efforts and results undertaken at state level, but we are also ready to change and reform ourselves. The results will not be absent.

A Call For Tourists

Its natural beauty makes the Užice region one of the most appealing in the Balkans and carries a great potential for development based on tourism. We pay special attention to rural tourism, and our recognizable sights are of great interest to visitors: Tara National Park, Mokra Gora – Shargan, Zlatibor Nature Park, Potpeć Cave, Cetinje River Canyon, the Old Town, a hydroelectric power plant under the town – the first power plant in Europe built according to Tesla’s principles – and the new legacy of the painter Mihailo Milovanović. During the year, internationally renowned festivals are held in the municipality: Kustendorf Film Festival, Užice Summer, Native Days of Mokra Gora, Jumps from the Old Railway Bridge, Žestival, Yugoslav Theatre Festival, Licidersko Srce, Zlakusa Colony, Suva Igla Bienale.
