The Serbian business environment got a boost recently with the removal of fees and charges that were burdening businesses and citizens and discouraging potential investors.
Many Serbian companies suffer from weak corporate governance, where the owner, who is also often the company’s CEO, relies primarily on intuition to run the business. As a result, a large number of Serbian “early stage” companies are not able to succeed in the critical first years of doing business.

Whether waiting in a frantic emergency room after an accident, or at a routine medical check-up, patients everywhere look for relief, understanding and timely assistance from their doctors.

Statistics are grim for the victims of domestic violence in Serbia. In 2013, 76 people died in cases of domestic violence—45 of those were women and five were children. Since the beginning of 2014, 11 women have been killed and as many as 1,883 have contacted the helpline of the Counseling Against Family Violence, a civil society organization that provides support for victims.
