Green Synergy

The longstanding positive bilateral ties between Norway and Serbia provide a strong foundation for further growth, and my aim is to build upon the exemplary efforts of my predecessors to further enhance and deepen our relationship

Nordic cooperation has been a remarkable success story, fostering collaboration and unity among countries with shared values, strong welfare systems and an unwavering commitment to sustainability. This collaborative approach has resulted not only in economic prosperity, but has also set an example for the world in terms of social welfare, gender equality and environmental sustainability. The achievements of Nordic cooperation can be seen in these countries’ high living standards, quality healthcare, strong education systems and innovative solutions to global challenges. It serves as a testament to what nations can achieve when they work together for the common good.

The potential for transfers of knowledge and scientific and business cooperation between the Nordic countries, the Nordic Business Alliance and their Serbian counterparts is both promising and mutually beneficial. The Nordic countries have long been at the forefront of innovation, sustainable development and cutting-edge technologies. Their commitment to research, education and environmental sustainability has made them global leaders in various fields.

Serbia, on the other hand, possesses a highly skilled and educated workforce, a strategic geographical location and a burgeoning business environment. The collaboration between them can yield several advantages in terms of knowledge exchange, research collaboration, business partnerships, education and training, and environmental sustainability.

Serbia can benefit from the Nordic countries’ experiences in sustainable practices, which are crucial in today’s global context

The Nordic countries have for years been sharing with Serbian partners their expertise in areas like clean energy, environmental protection and advanced technology. This knowledge transfer has served to catalyse innovation and economic development in Serbia.

The promise of joint research projects between Nordic and Serbian institutions is today prominent and may lead to breakthroughs in various fields, from healthcare and biotechnology to sustainable agriculture and renewable energy. The involvement of AstraZeneca in the BIO4 campus is just one example of this that’s worth mentioning.

It is very reassuring that businesses from Finland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark are either actively exploring opportunities for joint ventures, investment and trade or are already present in these fields in Serbia. The Nordic Business Alliance has played, and continues to play, a pivotal role in connecting Serbian and Nordic companies.

Among the areas in which more effort is required are exchange programmes and educational partnerships through which the Serbian dual education system, as well as companies, may learn from Nordic examples.
