The economic and investment plan for the Western Balkans also contains financial support for achieving Green Agenda goals in the region, worth €9 billion in grants, said Serbian EU Integration Minister Jadranka Joksimović on Tuesday.

Speaking at a conference titled ‘Strengthening Circular Economy in Serbia – Nordic Experience,’ Joksimović said that the funds were intended for seven years, adding that an accompanying funding scheme, worth an additional €20 billion, had also been earmarked for the Western Balkans.

“The green transition has to be just like the EU has defined it and prepared accordingly, meaning that funds and mechanisms available in this process to the EU member states will be available also to us as an associate country,” the minister said.
