Marko Čadež and Safet Gërxhaliu, WB6

Western Balkan Six Chamber Investment Forum, Businesspeople Will Unify the Region

Although the establishment of the Chamber Investment Forum has shown itself to be a great move that's yielding tangible results in terms of increases level of trade and business cooperation, support from the governments of the region remains insufficient. We see one possible solution to this in the establishment of ministries for regional cooperation within each government, just as Nordic countries have regional cooperation ministers

H.E. Anders Christian Hougård Ambassador Of Denmark to Serbia

Goal Worth Fighting For

It is our hope that the success stories of Danish companies operating in Serbia will persuade more of their counterparts to invest in the country. However, this is a two-way street. We would still expect Serbian central and local governments to maintain their efforts to improve the business environment, digitise services and enforce the rule of law. The list of tasks might seem long, but the end-result is worth fighting for

H.E. Pertti Juhani Ikonen Ambassador Of Finland to Serbia

Do Just As the Nordics Do

Finnish companies have positive experiences of doing business in Serbia. However, Serbia should exert additional efforts to make the business environment more competitive, transparent and predictable

H.E. Arne Sannes Bjørnstad, Ambassador Of Norway to Serbia

Further Attention Must Be Given to Information Security

We work with the Serbian Government to prepare legislation on information security in line with EU standards. This is probably our most important contribution. We want to be a partner in E-governance

H.E. Jan Lundin, Ambassador Of Sweden to Serbia

We Have Entered a More Intense Phase of Economic Relations

Ana Brnabić, Prime Minister of the Republic of Serbia

New Industrial Policy Leads to New Growth Model

We must continue to confront the changes brought about by the fourth industrial revolution. That’s precisely why I insist on the importance of digital transformation, which is not limited only to the introduction of IT solutions, but rather represents a process that permeates all spheres, changes the way we live and work, in culture, medicine, agriculture, healthcare, communications and all other areas

David Lahl, Project Leader, Public Finance Reform

Sound Finances Key To SDG Implementation

The objective of the German Development Cooperation is to support the Serbian government in its efforts to improve good financial governance in the context of the 2030 Agenda. Adequate capacities to plan and execute budgets, as well as transparency, accountability and participation in budget processes, are crucial to the efficient implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals

H.E. Carlo Lo Cascio, Italian Ambassador to Serbia

Glass Half Full

Serbia needs to adopt and implement good reforms to guarantee a better future for the entire country. We are here to support Serbia in its commitment on reforms, especially in the rule of law area, and to cooperate with Belgrade for a more stable and interconnected region. It’s a joint effort and, as always, it takes two to tango, but we are confident in the progress that has been made-Carlo Lo Cascio

H.E. Subrata Bhattacharjee, Indian Ambassador to Serbia
