Serbia opens new chapters


BRUSSELS – today Serbia opened two new chapters in its EU accession talks – Chapters 20 (enterprise and industrial policy) and 26 (education and culture) – at an EU-Serbia Intergovernmental Conference (IGC).

This was the fifth EU-Serbia IGC – Serbia has to date opened eight, and temporarily closed two, out of the total 35 negotiation chapters.

In mid-February, the EU member states gave the green light for also opening Chapter 20 after receiving a European External Action Service report on progress in the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue.

The Serbian delegation was headed by Minister for European Integration Jadranka Joksimovic (pictured).
