Agenda 31052 serbia belgrad

  1. 1. “Participation in the European Community Programme for Employment and Social Solidarity PROGRESS” INT MARKT 31052 Organised in co-operation with: The Ministry of Labour and Social Policy & The Ministry of Economy and Regional Development, Serbia Venue: Holiday Inn Beograd **** 74 Spanskih boraca CS 11070 - Belgrade Telephone : +381-11- 3100000 Fax : +381-11-3100100 Belgrade, Serbia 14-15 October, 2008 For more information on TAIEX assistance and to download presentations of this event, please go to: http://ec.europa.eu/enlargement/taiex.
  2. 2. Aim of the meeting: Serbia's participation in PROGRESS – EC Programme for Employment and Social Solidarity – is seen by the Serbian Government as one of the key preparatory activities for the participation in EU initiatives in the field of social policy and employment open for member states, such as in those financed by the European Social Fund and EQUAL. It is also expected to significantly contribute to the preparation for participation in the 4th IPA (Financial Instrument of Pre- accession Assistance) component Human Resources Development. Therefore, the seminar in Belgrade would represent an important way of supporting all stakeholders in Serbia in the process of their prospective participation in the Programme. Having in mind that the previous seminar on PROGRESS held in Belgrade in November 2007 gathered around 50 participants and that the interest of potential beneficiaries of the Programme has significantly increased since, it is estimated that the workshop would attend at least 100 representatives of national authorities, social partners, NGOs, educational and research institutions, etc. All the problems, open issues, difficulties, possibilities, challenges and other aspects could be discussed directly with experts from the European Commission and with national coordinators in Serbia, but primarily with the beneficiary organizations from the EU which have significant experience in project management and are already implementing projects within the framework of PROGRESS. The event would be opened by Serbian high officials, who also participated in the press conference held by Mr. Vladimir Spidla, EU Commissioner for employment, social affairs and equal opportunities, on the occasion of his visit to Belgrade in October 2007, when Serbia’s participation in PROGRESS was announced publicly for the first time.
