The photo exhibition “The Year of Reconstruction” about the EU support to the flood affected areas is organised on Savsko šetalište, Kalemegdan 5-12 May 2015 as part of the Europe Week. The human interest stories show how the European Union’s support changed lives of common people affected by the floods in May 2014, through construction and reconstruction of family houses, reconstruction of public buildings, support to agriculture producers, micro and small enterprises.
The European Union will provide assistance to the agriculture producers in Gornji Milanovac, Lučani, Ljig, Ćuprija, Smederevo and Petrovac na Mlavi.
