Serbian Minister for Commerce Slobodan Cvetkovic met with members of U.S. Congress Robert Aderholt, John Moolenaar and Tracey Mann at Capitol Hill on Feb. 1, and discussed their further support to Serbia’s economic development and to the advancement of the legal framework for cooperation that would relax business and investments between Serbia and the U.S. to the maximum.
Cvetkovic presented Serbia’s potentials, stressing that it had developed one of the most investment-conducive environments in Europe, stated the Ministry for Commerce.
“Serbia is still one of the global leaders in attracting investments, which is best seen in the numbers that show that our country had attracted more than EUR32 billion in foreign direct investments from 2012 to the end of 2022. Our country’s commerce is well positioned geographically and a lot is being invested into infrastructure. Besides, we have an attractive and stable business environment, political and energy stability and a quality workforce – well educated, particularly engineers and IT specialists,” the minister stated.
The members of Congress declared that they would support all those who truthfully work on establishing stability in the region and that Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic had been recognized in the United States as a reliable partner, the statement reads.
