  • Serbian economic attractiveness must be helped by death of territorial nationalism. No territorial nationalists in parliament or president. Nationalism now all about potential economic wealth for all. Dejan pavicevic ambassador to Kosovo with border guards and customs agents on border with Kosovo.

  • Having bought and recently sold (at a loss) a house in Serbia after living there for 4 years, I can confidently state that buying property in the country is a minefield of mis-information, crooked solicitors and official red tape with all employees in the tax, registration and real estate fields unaware of local/national laws and unwilling/unable to be of service to foreign buyers and sellers. Beware!

  • Serbia needs to adress the judicial sector and adopt necessarry laws ASAP, as it is set to open the most challenging chapters of EU accession talks, 23- regarding judiciary and fundamental freedoms, and 24- security. Constitutional amandments, which are expected in the following years, should enable full independence of judiciary and enable an institutional fight against nepotism and corruption. While living standards sour, on the other hand, there are signals that Serbian authorities are doing their job in these areas in order to secure invitation to join the EU as its next member-state.
