As the political situation and the economy have eased in the past few years, a trickle of ex-patriots (Serb citizens who moved abroad) have begun to return. I know personally of three families in my circle alone and have received emails from several other returning Serb expats who read this blog.
I suspect the government would like to see the diaspora reversed even more. More expat retirees coming home to spend their last years and life savings living well in a land that's pretty cheap (as long as you stay out of downtown Belgrade.) Plus, more young workers with college degrees and experience in the Western business world who'll help lure more multinational companies to do business in Serbia.
If you are a former Serb citizen (or Yugoslav from the Serb area), what in your mind would make return-worthy conditions? Why and when will you move home again?
If you are someone who lived abroad and already returned, what made you come back?
As a foreigner who lives in Serbia part-time and as the step-mother of two young-adult Serbs who will be making the "which country?" decision soon, I'd be very genuinely interested to know. Thank you.
