European Union mobilizes over EUR 3.3 billion in support for the Western Balkans
The European Union will mobilize a package of over EUR 3.3 billion in support of the health systems of the Western Balkans, Bulgaria’s Premier Boyko Borissov said at a briefing after the EU-Western Balkans Summit which took place via a video conference. The package provides macro-financial assistance to the tune of EUR 730 million for the needs of the socio-economic recovery. Apart from that, the European Investment Bank provides EUR 1.7 billion in project assistance. This is a huge financial injection for the countries from the Western Balkans, Premier Borissov noted and specified that he had asked Serbia’s President Vucic and other leaders “to make sure that the people from the Western Balkans learn about this European assistance”.
