Over the course of two days, more than 40 events were held under the auspices of the Serbian Visions Multicongress, with NGOs and associations presenting their activities and discussing a number of important issues with students, citizens and professionals.
The event’s topics covered the fields of the economy, education, culture, European integration, environmental protection, innovation, security and many other fields that interest modern man and create a vision for a better Serbia.
“As is the case every year, I reiterate that this is about Serbian visions, and not German visions that are tailored to Serbia,” said German-Serbian Chamber of Commerce Director Martin Knapp, speaking at the opening of the multicongress and noting that Serbian Visions is a platform for civil society organisations to show their commitment to this task, emphasising that one of the goals of this multicongress is to highlight the role of civil society and contribute to the progress of the entire community.
Miroslav Miletić, advisor to the President of the Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Serbia, said that the Serbian Visions Multicongress represents a unique concept of bringing together businesses, non-governmental organisations and professional associations in order to connect and network with the aim of improving the business environment.
Serbian Visions plaques were also presented at the opening of the congress, with the Best Vision plaque presented to the association Žene na prekretnici [Women at a Turning Point], which is the only association dedicated to the economic empowerment of women aged over 45, who represent the most vulnerable group on the labour market.
The plaque for the Best Social Engagement was presented to Milena Milojević from the Institute of Internal Auditors of Serbia.
