Switzerland allocates significant funds for energy efficiency promotion projects, which contribute to Serbia’s efforts in the fight against climate change, said the country’s ambassador in Belgrade, Urs Schmid, during a conversation with the Minister of Energy in the Government of Serbia, Dubravka Đedović.

As he emphasized, Switzerland is a very important trade partner of Serbia within the EFTA mechanism and in recent years is one of the five countries with the largest net investments in Serbia.

“It is particularly significant that Swiss companies in Serbia today employ more than 12,000 workers,” specified Šmid and explained that the new program of cooperation with Serbia until 2025 defines key segments, among others, climate change and sustainable urban development.

In the conversation, it was pointed out that Switzerland is donating more than eight million euros for the project of using RES in district heating systems in several local governments in Serbia, where heat pumps, solar and geothermal technology will be used.
