The Balkans belong to the regions most negatively affected by the financial and economic crisis. Nevertheless, STRABAG continues doing business in these countries as we are convinced that the economy will improve soon. There are clear advantages of Serbia as investment destination such as the geo-strategic position in South East Europe, a number of free trade agreements, natural resources, process industry and tourism, better investment climate, numerous tax and financial incentives for foreign investors. Countries which are better integrated into global trends are provided with an opportunity to more rapidly absorb the knowledge required for further growth. Sustainable and accountable public finances are the keystone for broader market-oriented reforms, strong growth and poverty alleviation and successful re-integration into the European and global economic structures.
