The Foreign Investors Council (FIC) celebrated 15 years of operating in Serbia with an event at Belgrade’s White Palace complex, attended by numerous guests from the country’s economic, social and political life. On this occasion, the esteemed guests were addressed by FIC President Yana Mikhailova and Serbian Finance Minister Dušan Vujović. A retrospective on the establishment of the FIC was compiled by Christoph Greussing, who served as the first General Secretary of the Foreign Investors Council.
“The FIC mission was, and is today, to remain committed to the active promotion of a sustainable business environment in Serbia through open dialogue with the authorities and other relevant stakeholders,” said FIC President Mikhailova.
“Serbia today, after three years of reforms, is one of the most attractive investment locations in the Western Balkans and beyond. We are striving to improve the business climate in order to attract the largest possible number of investors. During 2016, thanks to foreign investments, 16,400 new jobs were created,” said Finance Minister Vujović.
