Sector for Services and Development of Local Government

The Sector for Services and Development of Local Government provides assistance in developing small and medium size enterprises and local governments through various services. This primarily includes the standardized set of services that accredited regional development agencies provide and they consist of four service types:

  1. Providing information
  2. Providing trainings
  3. Consulting
  4. Promotion

The territory covered by the Regional Development Agency South consists of three districts: Nisava, (City of Nis – Municipalities Mediana, Zemun, Pantelej, the Red Cross and Niska Banja, municipality Aleksinac, municipality Doljevac, Svrljig municipality, municipality Merosina, Razanj municipality and  municipality Gadzin Han), Pirot (municipality of Pirot, municipality Babusnica, municipality of Bela Palanka and Dimitrovgrad municipality) and Toplica (municipality of Prokuplje, Kursumlija municipality, and municipalities of Blace and Žitoradja).

servsBased on the Directive of the Government of the Republic of Serbia that sets clear standards for identifying levels of development of regions and local governments, to the first group, above the national average, belongs one local government from the region; in the second group in which the degree of development is from 80% to 100% of the national average is also one local government from the region; the third group where the level of development is from 60% to 80% of the national average includes three local governments from the region; the fourth group, extremely undeveloped with the level of development below 60%, includes as many as 10 local governments from the region out of which 5 also belong to the fifth group of the so-called devastated areas whose development level is below 50% of the national average. This situation conditioned a creation of a new sector that would deal with supporting the development of local governments in the region through increasing their capacity and educating their workforce.

In addition, the region covered by the Regional Development Agency South consists of over 18 000 enterprises. The sector of small and medium size enterprises and entrepreneurs is a dominant one in the economic structure of the region and as such deserves greater support in its development. This is why the Sector for Services and Development of Local Government provides technical support to the SMEs and entrepreneurs and yet to improve their human capital and financial capacities which would further contribute to the faster development of the entire sector.
