A report on average wages in former Yugoslavia countries and Albania, compiled by Anadolu news agency, says Slovenes earn most in the region per month, with average wages of 1,002 euro.

This comes as no surprise, as the country has been a member of the EU for almost 10 years and was the wealthiest republic in Yugoslavia.

Croatia, also a member of the EU, since 2013, is second in line, with average monthly salaries of 728 euro.

Countries in the middle of the group are Montenegro, where salaries average 473 euro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, where the figure is 423 euro, and Serbia, where 381 euro is the average monthly wage.

Albania is close to the bottom of the table with average salaries of 377 euro and Macedonia comes last with average monthly salaries of 352 euro.
