13. June 2017. | Belgrade

The Republic of Serbia has achieved a remarkable result in the decentralised management of IPA funds by signing 143 contracts in the period from 6 June 2014, when the Financing Agreement for the National IPA 2013 Programme was signed, until 6 June this year. This represents a high rate of contracting of 86.18% while the total value of these contracts is €130,411,635.51.

The National IPA 2013 Programme is the first programme to be implemented under the decentralised management of EU funds, and a large number of contracted projects contributes to the fact that Serbia is ready to apply the rules and procedures of the European Union and absorbs funds, at the same time pointing to the strong commitment of all stakeholders.
