Tamara Daltroff, generalni direktor EACA

Teška i inspirativna vremena

Bregzit, izbori u Evropskom parlamentu i nova struktura Evropske komisije, kao i pojava novih igrača na tržištu i pitanja zaštite podataka, uticaće i na rad agencija 2019. godine. Lokalne agencije moraće da se suoče i sa izazovima na domaćem terenu

Anders Samuelsen, Danish Minister for Foreign Affairs

EU Accession Cannot Be Rushed

Serbia has achieved substantial progress, but the implementation of real reforms is crucial. A credible market economy, rule of law and an empowered civil society with free media and secured fundamental rights are important elements for any country preparing for EU membership. I would also mention Serbia’s ability to fight corruption and organised crime as being of particular importance – Anders Samuelsen

H.E. Tomáš Kuchta, Ambassador of Czech Republic

Fear of Populism Ahead of EU Elections

Many EU member states must actually solve serious internal problems, and that creates space for different political options to also present themselves with some “simple” or, if you like, populist solutions to EU agendas - Tomaš Kuchta

Tamara Daltroff, Director General at EACA

Tough & Inspiring Times

Brexit, European Parliament elections and a new set-up of the European Commission, as well as the emergence of new players on the market and data protection issues will impact on the work of agencies in 2019, while local ones will also have domestic challenges to deal with

Dejan Savić, Head Coach of the Serbia Men’s National Water Polo Team

Guardian of Sport’s Culture

I watched Dejan Savić throughout this entire playing career. From the age of 14 (1989), when Ratko Rudić gave him a chance in the Partizan first team and thus opened the door to him, as an extraordinary talent, all the way until 2010, when he retired from playing while at Red Star. He played in Spain, Italy and Russia, earning a great many friends everywhere. Alongside that, from the first to the 444th match for the national team, so many stories adorned with trophies, medals and individual awards

H.E. Amr Aljowaily Ambassador of Egypt to Serbia

Rich History, Bright Future

Despite the Egyptian Foreign Minister Shoukry making only a short visit to Serbia this November, he was keen to hold a breakfast meeting with the leaders of many companies interested in the Egyptian market at the Privrednik Business Association. In fact, we were pleasantly surprised that a larger number of company representatives than expected, almost 60, showed up at 7.45am! This commitment is much appreciated, and we consider it as a major indicator of the potential that exists between the two countries – Amr Aljowaily

Adir El Al, CEO of AFI Serbia

Business Philosophy of Simplicity

The most beautiful solutions are simple – a philosophy of success

Zorana Mihajlović Ph.d., Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure

Are We Facing a New Decade of Reform?

The reform of the real estate cadastre, following the e-permit reform, is the next major reform for our construction sector and one of the most important reforms for improving the business environment in Serbia. A prerequisite for encouraging investment is a regulated real estate cadastre, in which all updated data on real estate and property ownership is kept, as well as estimates of the value of immovable property, and which should represent the basis for determining public revenues

H.E. Subrata Bhattacharjee, Ambassador of India to Serbia

Sharing Common Views

Both countries agreed to cooperate closely in various multilateral fora

H.E. Junichi Maruyama, Ambassador of Japan to Serbia

We Want to Learn More About Serbia

The visit of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe to Serbia after 31 years was truly epoch-making. As a result, young Japanese volunteers will soon arrive in Serbia, while some Japanese companies have started recognising the benefits of Serbia. Our embassy is willing to help these initiatives.
