“In the EU we passionately advocate and work for full inclusion of all vulnerable and marginalised groups. No one must be left behind in modern democratic societies. In Serbia the EU has been supporting people with disabilities through a number of projects, aimed both at erasing physical boundaries – such as ramps, public facilities ‘ accessibility, equipping and adjusting schools; but also on awareness raising and policy aspect in the field of education, sports and social inclusion to create society for all.

I am therefore thrilled that we can advance further on this important cause together with the Paralympic Committee. I congratulate Serbia for having already won medals in Tokyo. I look  forward to the same success at the Paralympics in Japan. Good luck to all, we will be cheering for you” said Ambassador Fabrizi.
