Project launch Aid for Trade Serbia

Nov 21, 2016

In October 2016, a contract was signed between the Ministry of Agriculture and Environmental Protection, General Secretariat of the Government of the Republic of Serbia and UNDP Serbia on launching a project Aid for Trade: Support to Productive Capacities in the Agro-industrial Sector in Serbia, that will be implemented until 2019.

The objective of this project is to promote inclusive growth through promoting productive capacities and competitiveness within the agricultural sector in Serbia. The project is funded by UNDP-Russia Trust Fund and it builds upon UNDP experience in development assistance to the countries of Eastern Europe and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

The project will focus on increasing trade and stabilizing income generation in rural areas through two activities:

  • Assisting producers to improve their productive capacities and increase their knowledge on markets and export;
  • Strengthening cooperatives and associations to participate in decision making process.

In addition, the project will work on promoting the potential of Serbian agriculture through supporting participation of producers and processors in fairs and other promotional events, both on regional and international level.
