Serbian Government has identified 18 relevant strategic projects with estimated implementation cost of €1.9 billion, out of which Serbia has allocated €166.2 million, said Minister without portfolio in charge of European integration Jadranka Joksimovic.
Serbia is a key partner for the EU and is poised to move ahead in its membership accession negotiations during 2016. This has been a remarkable year. First of all, on 14 December we opened the first two chapters in Serbia's EU accession negotiations. This offers a major opportunity that needs to be seized. A poll that we commissioned in October showed that 59% of the population support Serbia’s membership in the EU and 53% expect Serbia to join the Union in about 10 years or less.
