The Map of the Regional Development Measures and Incentives Register (RegRDMI Map) has been published today by the Serbian Business Registers Agency. The Map displays sets of information on state investments, economic development, and economic potential containing the annual data for 2022.

The data presented on the RegRDMI Map show that the implementing authorities of regional development incentives have managed to implement incentives in a significant amount in 2022. The total realized incentives in 2022 amounted to RSD 229.9 billion, a 10.3% increase compared to the year before. The share of non-refundable funds in the total realized incentives amounted to RSD 199.9 billion (87.0%), which is an increase of 4.2% compared to the previous year.

Of the total realized incentives, the largest part was directed to the economy, i.e. RSD 120.5 billion (52.4%) to companies and sole proprietors and RSD 48.9 billion (21.3%) to institutions in the field of education and science. A significant amount of incentives was also paid to local self-government units (RSD 23.6 billion), agricultural farms (RSD 19.3 billion) and health institutions (RSD 5.1 billion).

According to the purpose of investment, 85.3% of the total realized incentives (RSD 195.9 billion) were directed to: traffic infrastructure (RSD 59.1 billion); education, science, culture, and sports (RSD 45.6 billion); encouraging manufacture (RSD 36.4 billion); encouraging scientific research, research and development (RSD 20.6 billion); encouraging agriculture (RSD 20.1 billion), as well as encouraging employment (RSD 14.1 billion). Investment in the mentioned areas increased by 7.5% compared to the previous year.

The Map provides key data on the economy and the non-profit sector, integrated from different sources (state authorities and organizations, as well as other registers within the Agency’s competence), in order to provide a comprehensive overview of the development of the domestic economy (in total and on a territorial level), for the current year and the past three years, in the form of tables and graphs.

The information presented on the RegRDMI Map, where all municipalities in the Republic of Serbia are displayed according to the achieved level of development pursuant to the current regulation, is a particularly useful source of information for potential investors in the Republic of Serbia. Prior to investing in a particular territory, they are interested in obtaining and reviewing, both the characteristics of the achieved economic development and the potentials for the development of the selected territory, starting from the size of the territory, population, qualification structure of the unemployed, as well as other elements of the territorial development. It is also useful for regional development entities in the process of making decisions on incentive investments aimed at strengthening the economy of a particular territory and raising the level of competitiveness of the economy in that territory, all with the aim of reducing uneven regional development.

All data published on the Map is available to users free of charge. By performing the appropriate search, they can obtain data in the form of data sets for all four territorial levels (the Republic of Serbia, regions, districts, and municipalities).
