September - Ideal For Holidays, But Also For The Start Of New Business Cycles:

Holiday In The Waning Of Summer

Thanks to its more pleasant temperatures, reduced crowds, but also lower prices, people are increasingly opting to take their summer holidays in September. And while tourists enjoy all the benefits of summer’s twilight, reservations at hotels and hospitality facilities are greatly sought after

The very best of Serbia, from foreigners who know:

Welcome To Serbia

Warm, welcoming and lots of fun – everything you never heard about Serbia is true. Exuding a feisty mix of elan and inat (national traits of rebellious defiance), this country doesn’t do ‘mild’: Belgrade rivals Berlin as a party destination, the northern city of Novi Sad hosts the epic EXIT festival, and even its hospitality is emphatic – expect to be greeted with rakija (fruit brandy) and a hearty three-kiss welcome

Stogodišnjica jednog prijateljstva

Specifično prijateljstvo između Francuske i Srbije nije zaboravljeno, što dokazuje znatan broj ulica u Francuskoj koje nose ime u sećanje na Prvi svetski rat, u gradovima kao što su Brest, Klermon Feran, Denkerk, Mulen, Nansi, Never, Nim, Pariz, Poatje, Rems... Francuska učestvuje i u godišnjim ceremonijama koje se organizuju na Srpskom vojničkom groblju u Tijeu. Činjenica da Francuska može danas da prikupi više od 208.000 evra u dobrovoljnim prilozima za obnovu spomenka na Kalemegdanu takođe pokazuje da se taj istorijski savez pamti - Frederik Mondoloni

H.E. Philippe Guex, Ambassador of Switzerland

The Power of a Referendum

One should not underestimate the political wisdom of the people. However, I admit that a referendum is not an easy democratic instrument to handle. The political elite must be mature enough to refrain from having a hidden agenda when holding a referendum – Philippe Guex

Žan Batist Kizen, direktor Francuskog instituta u Srbiji:

Zajednička pričao prijateljstvu

„Ovo je značajan trenutak za Francuski institut u Srbiji zato što je Vlada Srbije uputila zahtev da postane punopravni član Frankofonije, i mi ćemo ga svakako podržati.“

Kristof Lekurtije, Generalni direktor agencije Biznis Frans:

Srbija je sve zanimljivije investiciono tržište

Mnogi kombinovani faktori pomažu Srbiji da privuče interes francuskih kompanija i poveća privredni potencijal: solidna industrijska tradicija nasleđena od Jugoslavije, visok nivo osposobljenosti stanovništva, strateška lokacija zemlje i učešće u trgovinskim sporazumima koji otvaraju prostor za snažan izvoz

Majo Mićović, President Of The Swiss-Serbian Chamber Of Commerce, General Manager Of Sky Express D.O.O.

Ever Better Cooperation

Switzerland is a country of serious business operations, cautious steps and intelligent investments. With such an investment nature, Swiss investors prefer to move step by step when it comes to expanding their operations in Serbia. The visible progress achieving in business conditions in Serbia provides a sound basis for further development and investments. Of late we’ve also been witnessing increased interest among Swiss businesspeople, particularly in the fields of IT, agriculture and energy

Dragoljub Damljanović, predsednik Francusko-srpske privredne komore:

Šansa koju treba iskoristiti

Francuski privrednici uviđaju da se Srbija trenutno nalazi na nekoj vrsti moguće ekonomske prekretnice i da može biti lider na Balkanu. Nadam se da ćemo umeti da ostanemo na toj pozitivnoj trasi i iskoristimo taj potencijal. Naša Komora je spremna da francuskim kompanijama otvori vrata Balkana

Dragica Tomčić, Economic Attaché, Embassy Of Switzerland:

We Gladly Share Swiss Know-How

It is evident that strengthening private sector-responsive education and vocational training should be continued, in order to reduce the high level of unemployment among young Serbians. We are glad that we were able to engage with Dr Ursula Renold, a top expert of the Swiss Economic Institute, to support implementation of the law on dual education in Serbia

Ana Govedarica, Roche Serbia General Manager & SSCC Board Member:

New Medicines Available Quicker Than Ever

Roche applies a flexible model through which, in cooperation with local health systems, prices are determined on the basis of the budgets of health funds and the effects they have on individuals
