The Finance Ministers of Serbia and Montenegro, Sinisa Mali and Milojko Spajic said on Tuesday that the two countries would intensify their activities on joint projects.
A ministry press release said that they discussed the advantages of the Open Balkans initiative for the countries involved in the project. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and the Prime Ministers of North Macedonia and Albania, Zoran Zaev and Edi Rama, launched the initiative under the name Mini-Schengen two years ago and renamed it Open Balkans during a summit at a business forum in Skoplje last week. The project is intended to allow the free flow of labor, goods and finances across the Western Balkans. It met with opposition from the Kosovo authorities.
The two ministers said that economic cooperation between Serbia and Montenegro was good but with room to improve.
