D. J. Delivanis


Greek-Serbian economic relations in the XIXth century were mainly
the result of the Greek caravans passing through and stopping in Serbia
on their way to Central Europe and back, of the services offered
to them and of the understanding which gradually developed between
the people of the two nations. The Orthodox religion they shared, their
mutual endeavour to free themselves from the Ottoman yoke, the similarity
of character, of habits, of customs and of their political, social
and economic regimes and also the relatively equal distribution of their gross national product reinforced this connection. There was little trade
between Serbians and Greeks in the XIXth century, as both produced
more or less the same goods, with the exception of oil, which was produced
only in some Greek areas. The close association between Serbians
and Greeks within the Austro-Hungarian Empire increased their knowledge
of each other and their links, which prevented any war between
them even when they had differences.
