Questions and Answers


What are Western Balkans countries?

The term “Western Balkans” has geographical and political dimensions. Currently, this includes Albania along with the successor states of former Yugoslavia: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia. It does not include Slovenia and Croatia, which joined the European Union in 2004 and 2013, respectively.

What are business opportunities in Western Balkans?

Countries of the Western Balkans region have a long-term tradition in mining, processing, and metallurgical activities. The RESEERVE project, funded by the EU, is currently mapping the mineral resources of the six ESEE countries: Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, and North Macedonia. The project’s objective is to identify business opportunities for further development of “untapped” strategic metals and reduce exploration and investment risks.

What are the objectives of the MINEX Europe Forum?

The main objective of the Forum is to provide a fresh outlook on mining and exploration of primary and secondary raw materials development in the Western Balkans region and to stimulate discussion between industry, governments and investors on sustainable mining relying on advanced international knowledge and technology.
