Development of Serbia should be a combination of the EU strategy towards the Danube River and the strategy that Serbia has towards the Danube. The Danube River, its coastline and the wider area, known as the Danube region, in the commercial and economic sense, suggests that the Danube is more used in the top, than in its lower reaches. Today, the Danube region covers not only the coastal states of the Danube River but also the country through which flows a tributary of the Danube. Therefore, the Serbian perspective must take a new strategic position in the Danube region, given that its economic capacity significantly collapsed with the current economic crisis and the political turmoil that lasted from the end of the nineties. Increased cooperation between the countries of the Danube region assumes greater involvement of the Danube countries which are members of the European Union. The institutionalization of cooperation in the European integration process will mean greater coordination, but also the impact of existing mechanisms such as the Danube Commission, whose authority is not questioned.
