These areas encompass combating shadow economy, enhancing competitiveness, advancing electronic administration, digitizing healthcare, promoting innovation, and more.

Participation in projects and inniatives
Members actively drive and execute projects crucial for local self-governments and the economy in collaboration with NALED, that has, since its establishment in 2006, successfully implemented over 240 economic development projects, receiving support from international partners such as USAID, GIZ, EU, SIDA, EBRD, SDC, World Bank, British Embassy, UNDP, and committed members like Philip Morris International (PMI), Mastercard, Visa, Telegroup, Saga, Ball Packaging, Sekopak, Mercator-S, Faculty of Geography, and others.

„It is the only organization in Serbia that also includes local governments
and the non-governmental sector and companies and they are all in one place and they are all treated equally
they agree on what to do... we have seen that all other locales are locales
self-governments that were part of NALED progressed economically.
There is expertise, professionalism and when you get into something you get into
an elaborate system that helps you get better."
„What distinguishes NALED from the others is that it is not some kind of working group
which, apart from the real environment, works on the text of the law, which we are witnessing,
according to the laws and rules, you should have a working group, and NALED does that
not only officials are there at the table, but a large number of people who live with it gather
and that's an important difference, and I'm talking about it based on projects that started from paper and
ended with implementation. That implementation capacity is a key activity
and a key positive indicator for NALED."
