Vasileios Kakagiotis, President Of The Hellenic Business Association

Excellent Partner For Strengthening Connections

The new Law on Chambers of Commerce, like every new addition, has met with controversy among the public and among businessmen

Changes always provoke opposing attitudes between those who promote and implement them and those who would like to keep things as they were. On the other hand, the Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Serbia adjusted the level of the compulsory membership fee in accordance with the economic juncture in the country.

At the Hellenic Business Association of Serbia, as one of the largest investment groups in Serbia, which gathers together 80 Greek companies operating in Serbia, we see in the Chamber of Commerce an excellent partner for strengthening links between the Serbian and Greek economies.

The advantage of Greek companies on the Serbian market lies not only in the traditionally good cooperation between the two countries but also in the geographical position of Serbia, low tax rates, educated personnel and the possibilities of state subsidies.

On the other hand, the challenges we face are definitely problems that arise on any country’s Euro-integration path.

Long-term compliance with EU regulations, judicial reform and complicated procedures for obtaining various operating permits are certainly the greatest challenges, not only for Greek firms but for other foreign companies that would like to expand their operations to the Serbian market.

This is precisely where the Serbian Chamber of Commerce enters the stage of the Hellenic Business Association, one of the main roles of which is to create an atmosphere of dialogue – dialogue between Greek and Serbian companies, interconnection of chambers and, perhaps most importantly, dialogue between Greek companies, state institutions and the Government of the Republic of Serbia.
