The Serbian Chamber of Commerce (CCIS/PKS) opened offices in Beijing and Shanghai to support companies wishing to set foot on the Chinese market.
The offices were opened with the support of Chinese partners, who have provided the complete infrastructure for them, the Chamber of Commerce said in a statement on Tuesday.
The economic cooperation between Serbia and China is getting more and more successful but great opportunities exist for developing economic ties further, particularly by attracting Chinese investments and modern technologies and increasing Serbian exports to the Chinese market, the president of the Chamber of Commerce, Marko Čadež, said in the statement.
During a visit to Beijing, Čadež held meetings with representatives of Chinese companies Tebian Electric Apparatus (TBEA), Kerui, Gezhouba, Huawei, China Power, China National Tobacco Corporation (CNTC) and Liten Group, according to the statement.
Serbia’s imports from China rose to 1.604 trillion dinars ($14.2 billion/13 billion euro) in 2016 from 1.54 trillion dinars in the previous year, while exports rose 27% on the year to 2.8 billion dinars, data from the country’s statistical institute showed.
