          • What does the cooperation between Serbia and NATO mean for Serbia’s defence industry?

          • The Individual Partnership Action Plan (IPAP) signed by Serbia and NATO does not cover only military cooperation, but also affects a number of other policy areas. This backgrounder will explore how implementation of the IPAP affects Serbian defence industry.

        • Defence industry in Serbia the has is considered to be the driving force for the whole economy, and it's products are considered to be the guarantee of security and defence. At the same time, arms industry is facing many business challenges.

          Since Serbia’s foreign policy orientation does not imply NATO membership, the highest possible form of political cooperation between Serbia and NATO was reached with adoption of the agreement on the Individual Partnership Action Plan (IPAP) at the end of 2014. With the Individual Partnership Action Plan, Serbia intends to develop long-term, substantial and concrete relations with NATO as a way of achieveing security and stability in the Western Balkans and substantiating the European integration process.

          This backgrounder includes an assessment of the current state in the defence industry and gives an overview of the areas which are meant to be improved through cooperation with NATO. IPAP contains several groups of measures that are relevant for the defence industry. Author answers how can the implementation of the IPAP agreement influence defence industry through:

          • Achieving interoperability;

          • Improving research and development;

          • Building integrity, and

          • Strengthening export control for arms and military equipment.

          Publication of this backgrounder was supported by the British Embassy in Belgrade through the project “IPAP in Vernacular”. The views expressed in this backgrounder are those of the author and do not reflect the views of the United Kingdom.
