c. Background Information
Improving investment climate plays a central role in growth and poverty reduction. To improve the institutional infrastructure for supporting the development of business environment in Serbia, the Serbian Development Agency (RAS) was established in 2015. Despite the promising progress in attracting more direct investments, Serbian business climate continues to be a disincentive to foreign investments. In addition, the recently established RAS is lacking some critical structures and procedures to effectively attract new investments and manage the existing projects.
The overall objective of the “Improving the Investment Climate in Serbia” project is to support the effective coordination of all institutions in the Republic of Serbia, relevant for improvement of the investment climate. The core of the activities relates to capacitating of RAS to improve the investment climate in Serbia by focusing support on the four main areas: legislation and regulatory framework, capacity of investment promotion team of RAS, investment project management and marketing and awareness-raising. In the framework of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), the project will contribute to the SDG 8: Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.
