The Minister of Economy, Ms. Andjelka Atanaskovic, stated: “Greece is one of the important economic partners of Serbia. The two countries have traditionally good business cooperation and friendly ties, as well as the willingness to improve economic cooperation.” The Minister pointed out that the cooperation between the two countries is characterized by significant investments of Greek investors, but also that trade between Serbia and Greece has not reached its full potential.
