Kopaonik Business Forum Held In Belgrade

The Kopaonik Business Forum was held in the last week of May in a changed format, with a different date, and, this time instead of Kopaonik, in Belgrade. More than 130 panellists, about 50 accredited journalists, and about a hundred participants in the hall of the Metropol Palace Hotel in Belgrade had interesting discussions during four days.

Despite the pandemic, Kopaonik business forum was successfully held and once again proved to be the most important regional conference, which discusses not only specific professional economic issues but much broader topics concerning the long-term development of society. The special guest was the respected and world-famous professor from Serbia Branko Milanović, who spoke about the phenomenon of global inequality and, in particular, the impact of Covid 19 on the world economy – said Aleksandar Vlahović, President of the Association of Economists of Serbia.

Traditionally, Ana Brnabić, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Serbia, closed the 28th Kopaonik Business Forum. The Prime Minister pointed out two events that show that the Government has fulfilled its promise to start the transition to an economy and a society based on innovation and knowledge. One of them is the writing of the Slovenian Delo about Belgrade becoming a technological centre. The second is laying the foundation stone for the construction of the BioSens Institute in Novi Sad.

At the panel dedicated to preserving the environment, H.E. Sam Fabrizi, the head of the Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Serbia, pointed out that the interest in the topics of the environment and climate change has grown. “In the European Union, these issues have already been resolved politically. Last year, the European Union adopted the Green Deal program, where the goal is for Europe to become a continent with zero carbon emissions,” Fabrizi said.
