Doing business in Serbia

Serbia’s continuing process of political and economic reform and support from the EU offers the prospect of development and opportunities in this market.

Serbia’s population is about 7.4 million and it is the largest market in the region both in size and population and has a strategic position at the crossroads between Central and South East Europe. The Serbian government is committed to integrating the country more closely with the European Union.

What are the opportunities?

Serbia has seen its economy grow at a rate of about 6% per year since 2000. Significant opportunities persist in areas of major capital investment, often backed by international lenders such as the World Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. Growing sectors include power, agriculture, business services, ICT and infrastructure.
