True Friendship Despite Adversities

As a longstanding member of the EU, Greece consistently supports Serbia’s European perspective. Excellent bilateral relations are further supported through the strong presence of Greek companies and the longstanding friendship between our people. Some of the challenges that both countries are currently facing haven’t altered the bigger picture.

Serbia and Greece Friendship Stronger Than Challenges

Bilateral ties between Greece and Serbia are excellent. We value strongly the support we receive from Greece on our EU path, and look forward to new and additional models of mutual economic cooperation, in spite of the challenges Greece is facing

New pathways for cooperation

The construction of the Budapest – Belgrade railway, as well as Chinese investments in the port of Piraeus, will benefit both Greece and Serbia by accelerating the flow of goods through the Balkans

Many Opportunities for Further Cooperation

The crisis provides an incentive to Greek investors to seek markets where they could expand their activities. In this sense, Serbia is becoming more attractive as there is finally clear consensus in the country on the importance of attracting foreign investors in order to reduce unemployment, and, even more importantly, the willingness to put to use their 'knowhow' and to develop a competitive economy.

Energy Sector and Renewables Most Interesting for Investment

Slight indicators of Greece exiting its economic recession could be a good start for improving cooperation and investment in the energy sector and renewable energy sources, tourism, food processing and the furniture industry

Hellenic Sugar Ready for Expansion

Our experience so far, and our potential, both corroborate expectations that Hellenic Sugar Serbia will become the leader of both Serbia and the region. Despite the fact that 2015 was the most perilous year for the sugar industry in Serbia, we meet 2016 with optimism.

Inimitable Flavours of the Mediterranean

When our customers in Serbia know how to make a proper Greek salad and are able to recognise real feta cheese, high quality olives and olive oil, and to smell the aroma of good oregano, we will know that they have become real lovers of Mediterranean cuisine.

Greek Business Etiquette and Protocol

When meeting someone for the first time, shake hands firmly, smile and make eye contact. There is no formal ritual when it comes to exchanging business cards in Greece, although it is a good idea to have one side translated into Greek and present the business card with this side facing up.
