The EU-funded twinning project "Promoting Social Dialogue" aims to strengthen the social dialogue as a powerful instrument through which the Republic of Serbia would achieve economic growth and improve working conditions while harmonising national legislations with the EU and international labour standards.
The main beneficiaries of the project are following social partners: the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Policy of the Republic of Serbia, the National Economic and Social Council, the Confederation of Autonomous Trade Unions of Serbia, the Trade Union Confederation “Nezavisnost”, the Serbian Association of Employers and the Local Socio-economic Councils.
In the period of March 2014 and March 2016 the Slovak experts provide assistance to the social partners in the process of development and sustaining capacities for conducting effective social dialogues throughout the country and harmonising the national labour legislation with the EU standards.
This project is implemented under IPA 2012. The total budget of the project is 1,5 mil. Euro.
