Serbia will open chapters 20 and 26 as part of the country’s EU accession negotiations, B92 has learned.

It was known previously that chapter 26 would be opened, while the new information is the opening of chapter 20.

Minister without portfolio in charge of EU integration Jadranka Joksimovic told B92 on Tuesday that she expected two chapters to be opened.

“I expect the opening of chapter 26, for which we have already been ready, and chapter 20 which concerns entrepreneurship and industrial policy. I think that’s realistic, just like chapter 29, the customs union is on the agenda. Some countries have given their consent but due to numerous procedural reasons I’m not sure that 29 will be (done) by Monday,” said Joksimovic.
