BELGRADE -- A new Medium Gallup poll, showing that 55 pct of the Serbian population supports the country's membership in the EU, will be presented on Friday in Belgrade.
The presentation of the details of the survey, carried out in February this year, will be attended by Head of EU Delegation to Serbia Michael Davenport and president and executive director of the agency, Srbobran Branković and Slađana Brakus, announced by the EU Delegation.
According to the survey, 56 percent of citizens believe that membership will bring more investments, 54 percent expect better protection of the environment, and 50 percent the rule of law.
