Assembly meeting gave the opportunity to track the record of past activities and adopt Annual and Financial Report for 2021. This has been an important year for FIC, which brought new leadership at the level of the Board of Directors. Apart from its best known projects: the White Book, ”Dialogue for Change”, and “FIC Insight into New Regulations”, FIC was highly active throughout 2021, which can be illustrated through the continuity of work of the Task Force for the implementation of White Book recommendations with the Government of the Republic of Serbia, numerous conferences, meetings, and round tables with representatives of all stakeholders.

About FIC: From an independent business association created by 14 companies, we stayed faithful to our principles and grew to gather more than 120 companies from all around the globe who have invested over EUR 36 billion and directly employ more than 100,000 people in Serbia, compared to EUR 150 million of investments and 3,160 employees in 2003! FIC main goal is to influence the improvement of business climate in Serbia by making concrete reform proposals and building a business portal for communication with the authorities in Serbia. FIC is also focusing on promoting solid business ethics and high corporate governance principles within the organization and towards local companies, the Government, and other external stakeholders.

Through support and active engagement of membership, FIC has proven to be a strict guardian of the business community interests and at the same time a reliable partner to the Government of Serbia and other relevant stakeholders.
