On April 28, 2017, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Government of Serbia will sign amendments to two assistance agreements, providing an additional U.S. $9 million in assistance to strengthen Serbia’s business enabling environment, make its small and medium enterprises more competitive, and support reforms to Serbia’s judiciary and government operations.
Since 2001, the United States Government through USAID has provided approximately $748 million in development assistance to Serbia. In partnership with the Serbian government and the Serbian people, USAID assistance has helped revitalize communities, strengthen Serbia’s economy, streamline its courts and government offices, and increase civil society’s role in public life.
