Serbia’s technology sector is booming, already accounting for six per cent of the country’s GDP and employing around 45,000 individuals. In 2019, the country exported 1.5 billion euros worth of IT products and services. The gaming and blockchain sectors are booming. The government has digitalised a lot of its public services and introduced coding classes in primary schools.
