The European Union now includes membership of 28 countries until the departure of England. However, by 2025, it is envisaged to join the EU countries of the Western Balkans. Membership involves solving many issues of each country individually, but also in the region. The countries of the Western Balkans must make reforms in terms of economy, democracy, many political issues and attitudes. In addition, it is necessary to carry out a reform of care, health and re-examine its industrial policies. Commitment to integration makes it easier to meet the required obligations towards the EU, and exchange of experiences and positive practices between the Western Balkan countries will be beneficial. The economic crisis that hit many countries of the world, which began in 2008, has slowed down the economic growth and development of these countries, slowed down their reforms, and led them into a risk of remaining at the periphery of international development. While the Western Balkan countries seek to reform, at the same time the European Union itself is in the process of internal reorganization.
