Cinema City Parallels: Photographic Exhibition “EU and Serbia: 15 Years of Partnership”
Honoring the 15th anniversary of the European Union's development aid to Serbia, the Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Serbia and the EU Info Point Novi Sad present the photographic exhibition “EU and Serbia: 15 Years of Partnership”, which will have its grand opening on Monday, June 27 at 6:30 P.M., hosted as part of the Cinema City International Film Festival.
Since 2001, Serbia has benefited from more than three billion euros in grants from the EU pre-accession funds. The EU and Serbia have implemented numerous successful projects throughout the country, fostering development and bringing multiple benefits to the citizens in many areas, including infrastructure, education, health, environmental protection, etc.
The exhibition “EU and Serbia: 15 Years of Partnership” is organized to showcase at least a part of the partnership established between the EU and Serbia. The exhibition features some 45 photographs, which manage to capture the results of the EU-Serbia joint projects helping Serbia to implement the reforms necessary to become a full member of the EU and to improve the standard of its citizens. The projects implemented cover all areas of human life and spread across all the regions of Serbia, from north to south.
