According to local media, the European Union will pay up to 350,000 euros ($380,000) in funding to eight Serbian towns to encourage the growth of tourism, hospitality, and winemaking industries.

The grant will be distributed to 42 entrepreneurs, winery owners, accommodation providers, restaurants, cafes, and river transport companies in the lower Danube area, eastern Serbia, and the municipality of Topola, who will use the money to improve their businesses, according to the Danas media outlet report on Wednesday.

The initiative is funded by the EU and the German government, and it is being implemented by the German development organisation Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and Serbia’s EU Cultural Heritage and Tourism programme.

Earlier, in January, the EU announced a grant totalling up to 200,000 euro ($218,000) across twelve projects in six Serbian municipalities to support creative and innovative ideas in the field of tourism and cultural heritage.

These projects aim to enrich the tourist offer in an innovative and sustainable way, thus contributing to the economic development of local communities, the EU Projects in Serbia, an organisation run by the tourism ministry had said in a press release.
