This project is one in a series of activities in the process of developing e-government of the Republic of Serbia and should contribute to strengthening the economy based on knowledge and innovation. The aim of the project is to contribute to achieving sustainable and inclusive economic growth in the Republic of Serbia, improving the business environment, increasing investment and innovation of the private sector, improving the transparency of the investment process and improving the climate for investment inflows. In addition, the project contributes to the process of European integration of the Republic of Serbia and promotes activities relating to the implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda of the United Nations. As such, it is of great importance for the Government of the Republic of Serbia.

The challenge of the project is the standardization of data, the regular updating of which leads to the establishment of the National Register of Investment Maps. The planned model is designed to:

  • enable unique identification of each investment location,
  • provide an unambiguous spatial component on the location of the investment area,
  • establish a unified classification of locations at the state level,
  • provide relevant information to potential investors,
  • provide transparent insight to citizens, the state and other stakeholders,
  • has the possibility of connecting with other national registers,
  • ensure that all information is defined in accordance with ISO 19100 standards and the INSPIRE directive,
  • ensure that all data changes can be monitored and updated.

The sub-goals of the project are:

  • creation of the register of investment locations,
  • raising the capacity of human resources in local self-government units and
  • promoting and increasing the visibility of the project.

The National Register of Investment Maps is structured to ensure its sustainability and development during and after the establishment of the register. This is achieved by a web application that contains data from the field. The primary role of the web application is to provide a mechanism for collecting and maintaining data on field investment sites that will be automatically stored in the National Spatial Data Infrastructure database. The web application will be an interface for monitoring and public promotion of the project. It will represent the segment that is in the form of an interactive map and which provides the current status of the project in real time. The aim of this application is to provide a transparent control mechanism for monitoring the dynamics of project implementation. Finally, the application includes an interface for establishing communication between investors and local government.

After the establishment of the National Register of Investment Locations, potential investors will be able to communicate with local governments through the application and invest in a specific location.
