Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said on Wednesday that Europe is the country’s most important economic partner but that it would remain open to whole world.
“We will try to continue to be open to the entire world and get more foreign investments. Free trade agreements are being prepared with China, the UAE and Egypt and will create more room for trade and new technologies,” she told the closing of the Kopaonik Business Forum. She added that the US is Serbia’s most important partner in the services sector while Chinese companies operating in the country are the biggest exporters.
Brnabic said that Belgrade was not abandoning its European path and was taking the best and hardest decisions for the country. “European integration is important for Serbia because all the measures on that path are useful for the economy and the citizens. Nothing would change in terms of the reforms being implemented by the government even if the European Union said there would be no expansion in the next 10 years because those reforms are in Serbia’s interest and will take it to the EU,” she said.
