TEAM EUROPE: THE NUMBER ONE PARTNER TO SERBIA

In April 2020 the European Union has launched its “Team Europe” package to support partner countries in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic and its consequences. The objective of the “Team Europe” approach is to combine resources from the EU, its Member States, and financial institutions, in particular the European Investment Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

The overall figure of the “Team Europe” package reaches almost 38.5 billion euros.

EU Global response to COVID-19


Global cooperation and solidarity is paramount to effectively fight the COVID-19 pandemic and ensure early access to vaccines, diagnostics and treatments everywhere.

No one will be safe until everyone is safe.

This is why the EU has been leading the multilateral response to make sure no one is left behind. The health security and start of a sustainable global recovery depend on it.
