To modernize the country in normal times or to face crisis in times of emergency, Team Europe – the European Union, the EU Member States and the EU Financial institutions such as the European Investment Fund - is the number one partner for Serbia.

Overall, the European Union is by far the biggest investor, biggest trade partner and biggest donor to Serbia. 

With over

3 billion Euros

in non-refundable aid to Serbia in the last 2 decades, the EU is supporting Serbia to become a more prosperous, sustainable, fair, secure and democratic country, prepared to join the Union. 

To fight COVID-19, the European Union is also here for Serbia.

When You Are in Need:

EU mobilisation for Serbia in times of emergency

EU donations & loans for Serbian health system: 450 million EUR

Stronger Together:

EU solidarity mechanisms also for Serbia

During these times of crisis, across the European Union, countries, regions and cities are stretching out a helping hand to neighbours and assistance is given to those most in need: donations of protective equipment such as masks, cross-border treatments of ill patients and bringing stranded citizens home. This is European solidarity at its best. EU solidarity mechanism has been extended to Serbia.
