The Agro Cluster of Serbia
At the end of 2017, The Agro Cluster Association of Serbia (AKS) was founded by three institutions: Produktna berza Novi Sad, The Institute of Agicultural Economics Belgrade and The Educons University Sremska Kamenica. Agro Cluster currently gathers 12 members, whose common mission is to create an adequate environment for the improvement of agricultural production, traders and processors in the agricultural market and to represent common interests before state institutions. The association helps its members in the process of applying for EU funds, with the organization of programs to improve the knowledge and skills of domestic companies in the field of agriculture and food production. In less than a year, the organization has established cooperation with 15 other associations and funds, as well as regional development agencies, and has succeeded in initiating and coordinating changes to regulations aimed at facilitating the trade of wheat.
