Activities related to the preparation and design of the Study has been completed. The distribution of the Study to all municipalities in the South-East planning region has begun.

Based on the information from the Study, an Investment guide will be prepared that will provide support of investments and attracting new domestic and foreign investors in the South-East Region.

In the following period the Centre will continue with the distribution of the Study in the other municipalities in the region.
