IPA cross-border programmes 2007-2013

The idea of cooperation in the economic region of the Sava river watershed was crowned on April 26th, 2007 in Sabac where the 12 Regional Chambers of Commerce have signed the protocol of cooperation.

The working groups within the project were established and the awareness seminar for the members of the working groups were organized by the CBIB project and the Regional Chamber of Commerce Valjevo, which has the role of the Chairman of the project until April 2008, on March 27th in the Municipal hall in Sabac.


The objective of this awareness seminar was not only to familiarize the members of the working groups with IPA CBC, cross-border programmes and the concept of the cross-border projects, but also to introduce them to the possibilities, opportunities and benefits of the implementation of these programmes for their respective regions.

Two presentations were made:

  • Introduction to IPA and IPA Component II, and the participation of the Republic of Serbia in cross-border and transnational cooperation programmes, presented by Ms. Kristina Askovic, Ministry of Finance, Republic of Serbia;
  • Regional project Cross Border Institution Building – CBIB and its activities in the Western Balkan region, cross-border cooperation process and individual steps within this process, and the cross-border cooperation projects presented by Ms. Marija Stevanovic from CBIB central office in Belgrade.

The presentations were followed by questions and answers.

The seminar was considered to be a highly informative and successful event that achieved its objective. All the questions raised were answered. The participants showed great interest in the presented topics and raised many questions regarding the IPA cross-border programmes, project preparation and project implementation. Organization of the seminar, hospitality of the host institutions and clear contents of presentations contributed to raising awareness of the potential applicants in this region
