“The Western Balkans have come nearer to the EU over the past few years, both politically and economically, and every country decides independently about the speed of its own integration,” Josep Lloveras told the opening of an international conference, "Ljubljana Agenda for a New Stage in the Stabilization and Association Process."
According to the European Commission (EC) official, the signing of the Central Europe Free Trade Agreement (CEFTA) had shown which path the region wanted to take.
Deputy Prime Minister Božidar Đelić expressed his belief that Serbia, if it got a new pro-European government, would be eligible for EU membership by 2012.
Đelic told the conference participants about the National Program for EU Integration to be presented to the public on June 9.
