Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said during the talks with newly-appointed Ambassador of France to Serbia Jean-Louis Falconi that the relations between Serbia and France considerably progressed this year through the strengthening of political dialogue and strategic partnership.
France is an important country for Serbia, Prime Minister Ana Branbic said, adding that its support and concrete assistance at the expert level is of great importance for the further European integration process of Serbia.
The Prime Minister explained that the strengthening of the economy and the creating of a favourable climate for new investments, as well as reforms in the area of rule of law, are important priorities of the government and expressed the expectation that Serbia and France will work together on interstate projects and the arrival of new French companies in Serbia.
Speaking about the public administration reform, Brnabic said that France’s experience and practice in this area are of paramount importance to Serbia, above all the assistance this country provided in establishing the National Public Administration Academy.
Ambassador Falconi confirmed that France has unambiguously shown its willingness to provide all necessary assistance to Serbia in the field of reforms and meeting the criteria on the path to the European Union, adding that the region of the Western Balkans, and above all Serbia, have been returned to the field of French interest.
