The achieved level of economic development determines the degree of industrial development in one country. The aim of this paper is to identify the key determinants of the new industrial policy of Serbia, in the context of European integration processes. The same is based on the analysis of strategic documents of Serbia and the European Union, governing the industrial development for the period up to 2020. Particular attention is paid to the monitoring of developmental dynamics and trends in improving industrial competitiveness. It has been noted that the achieved level of industrialization defines the industrial competitiveness of a national economy. Serbia needs an efficient, industrially competitive economic structure that will be able to meet the growing demands and challenges of the market. Only a properly designed and consistently applied industrial policy can follow the European developments in the future.

Key words: new industrial policy, the European integration process, The Competitive Industrial Performance Index (CIP), the development and competitiveness of the industry.
