    The Serbian Investment and Export Promotion Agency (SIEPA) announced that the US Commercial Centre, a specialised agency of the US Department of Commerce, declared Serbia-Montenegro the Market of the Month among 150 countries competing.

The 61-year-old ex-Yugoslav leader, who has been advised by doctors to rest regularly because of high blood pressure, has been defending himself at The Hague since February against charges of ethnic cleansing in the Balkans in the 1990s.
