Regional cooperation in the field of economic development

Since the beginning of the year RARIS and LED offices from the region held two regional meetings on in which they looked into activities related to economic development.

The previous activities on the promotion of investment potentials of the region towards Germany and Austria were analysed in the meetings. RARIS has identified 120 potential investors in the sectors of agriculture, wood processing, tourism and metal processing industry in Germany and Austria. In cooperation with local self-governments, detailed offers with opportunities for investment were prepared and sent to potential investors in the past two months. First responses and inquiries have started arriving and they are being processed together with local self-governments. At the call from Serbian Chamber of Commerce, RARIS presented investment potentials of the region in a business forum in Vienna on 24th of March 2015.

The course of preparations for cross-border cooperation projects with Bulgaria and Romania was analysed in the meetings and it was estimated that our region is extremely active in this process.

Activities for the establishment of better cooperation with Serbian diaspora in Austria were also agreed-upon. RARIS has created a database of our business people in Austria. By the end of April Business Forum "Eastern Serbia in Vienna" will be held with them in Austria and talks on how to improve economic cooperation between Serbian diaspora and our region will be held.

Opportunities for "TWINNING" program with Germany and procedures for applying for this Programme, as well as for programmes that use foreign expert assistance of SES and PUM were also presented in the meetings.
