The French Development Agency is showing increased interest in investing in Serbia, said H.E. Pierre Cochard the French ambassador to Belgrade, during talks with Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic.

Ambassador Cochard talked of a great potential of cooperation in a number of areas, including education and energy, as well as the interest of other French companies to invest in Serbia.

He emphasized the attention paid by France, as the EU presidency dedicates to the Western Balkans. In that context, he confirmed the holding of the EU Conference, the Western Balkans at the end of the French presidency of the Union, and called on the Government of Serbia to take an active part in its implementation.

PM Brnabic on this occasion underlined that the citizens of Serbia have a special relationship of respect and emotion towards France and that it is therefore important to have an open discussion, especially given the fact that Paris recognizes the specific position of Belgrade in the light of current developments in Europe and the world.

Ambassador Cochard also took part in the seminar “Sustainable waste management: from information to infrastructure”, where he said he expected the new French government, led by Prime Minister Elizabeth Born, to continue strengthening and intensifies cooperation with Serbia with the aim of, as he pointed out, Serbia joining the European Union as soon as possible.

“President Emanuel Makron has chosen a woman to head the government for the first time after 30 years. I expect that the cooperation between Serbia and France will be continued to be strengthened and intensified, with the aim to Serbia as soon as possible to join the European Union, especially in these difficult times, he said Cochard, reports Tanjug.
