“Ambassador of the Kingdom of Norway to Serbia Arne Sanes Bjornstad told Prime Minister Ana Brnabic that the Norwegian Government has confirmed that this year’s financial assistance to Serbia will be twice as high.

In line with the talks that the Serbian Prime Minister had during his visit to Oslo in November last year, the Norwegian government, in order to deepen the cooperation between the two countries, decided to allocate 61 million Norwegian kroner ($7,784,663.05) from this year’s budget, instead of 30 million Norwegian crowns ($3,828,425.06), how much Serbia got in 2017, Ambassador Bjornstad said.

According to the government’s Office for Cooperation with the Media, half of these funds will be sent to the economic development of the poorest parts of Serbia.” (translated from Vecernje Novosti)
