Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic started an official visit to South Korea on Sept. 8, which began with a meeting with her South Korean counterpart Han Duck-soo in Seoul, stating that a new chapter in Serbian-Korean relations had opened which would produce "concrete economic results" in the near future.
According to a press release issued by the Serbian government, Han underscored that Serbia was the ideal place for a hub for Korean companies to expand their business operations in Europe, which would also allow Serbian companies avenues to expand across the European continent.
The two prime ministers exchanged opinions on current global and regional issues and affirmed their intention to continue mutual support in international organizations of importance to both.
The two officials hailed the steps taken by the two sides to begin negotiations on an agreement on an economic partnership. They reached agreement and voiced a shared will to open formal talks on the agreement, in line with the relevant national procedures.
As for the subject of investment cooperation with South Korea, the Serbian prime minister said Serbia had a lot of work ahead of it, which is why the Sept. 8 signing of the Agreement on mutual encouragement and protection of investments was especially important.
