Greater cooperation in the region

In October 2016 the Republic of Serbia Securities Commission signed a continuation, an extension of the Declaration on Cooperation among the securities regulators in the Balkan region.

The signing ceremony was held on the premises of the Slovenian Securities Market Agency in Ljubljana.

Considering the common goal of establishing a highly regulated, fair, efficient and transparent capital market, market regulators from Macedonia, Slovenia, Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro, Republika Srpska, Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Brcko District confirmed their commitment to create a basis for the development of a common methodology and practice for offering investment services and strengthening supervision by improving the investment environment and attracting small and medium-sized companies on the capital market.

The joint cooperation will lead to coordination in legislation and setting the same standards for sanctioning market manipulation and insider trading.
