Central Serbia region is mostly underdeveloped with very weak industry sector high level of unemployment and poverty. In last few years some agricultural sectors, especially high quality wine production, emerged as a possibility for growth and development. But, for the majority of small wineries (200 in the region), the wine production process is not yet market oriented and it is not harmonized to the standards of the EU, the export is extremely weak and the wine is mainly dedicated to local market. The project will contribute to increase economic competitiveness of wine producing companies and productivity and commercial prowess of 35 wine producing companies in the region. This will be achieved through different activities: harmonization to the quality standards of EU, implementation of training for 35 winemakers in the region and 25 employed and 200 pupils in the Agricultural school in Aleksandrovac, production of the Winemaking Protocol, Grapes Production Protocol and production of Wine Production Database and Grape production Database.
