Expansion of cooperation with Italian region of Veneto Brnabic Luca Zaia

Prime Minister Ana Brnabic assessed, after the signing of the Agreement on cooperation in the field of economic, social and cultural development with President of the Italian region Veneto Luca Zaia that Serbia and Italy are strategic partners, which is best evidenced by the continuous progress in the field of economic cooperation.

The Prime Minister stressed that this agreement will enable not only a continuation of cooperation in the field of the economy and production activities but also in the field of contemporary creativity and creative industries, education and science.

Brnabic said that Serbia is interested in continuing cooperation in the field of innovative technologies and investments of small and medium-sized enterprises from Veneto, a region that has proved to be a leader in this field in Italy.

The good conditions and incentives that Serbia offers to Italian companies and a stable business environment are a guarantee for continued cooperation, the President of Veneto said, emphasising that he views Serbia as a neighbour and a very important partner.

Zaia offered help and to share an experience which Veneto has in the field of digitisation of the health sector given that this region managed to fully digitise the healthcare system, which has enabled a complete cost control, easier work for healthcare professionals and greater citizen confidence in the healthcare system.

Prime Minister Brnabic explained that Serbia is rapidly working on its digitalisation agenda, and that the government’s focus in the coming period will be on the complete digitisation of the healthcare system, and that in this sense the Venetian experience would be of great importance for Serbia in many respects.

The President of Veneto expressed gratitude for the assistance Serbia provided to Venice to repair the damage caused by the floods that hit this Italian city in November last year.
