Accelerated reforms, particularly those in the area of improving the business climate, ensure that the opinions of business associations are more important than ever. The increasingly open and constructive dialogue between the government and business leaders, which also resulted in Serbia making continuous progress on the World Bank’s ’Doing Business’ list, compelled us to set aside space in the New Year’s edition of CorD for the comments of presidents of chambers of commerce and organisations, business clubs and associations that bring together members of industry, NGOs and representatives of the local community.
Established in March 2014, the Swiss-Serbian Chamber of Commerce (SSCC) was created as a result of the Swiss business community’s growing interest in Serbia, in order to strengthen economic relations between Serbia and Switzerland, in the form of establishing an organisation that would work to improve the dialogue between the two countries
We offer an opportunity to our members to increase their corporate visibility within the SSCC network and to maintain regular communication with other member-companies. We are also publishing interviews with representatives of our member-companies in order to promote the activities of Swiss companies in Serbia and highlight their good business practises
SSCC is in a good position to identify the interests and concerns of its member companies and relay them to officials and decision-makers. To achieve this, SSCC creates platforms for public-private dialogue by organizing conferences, the last of which was held in October 2016 - ’’Conference on SMEs’’.
