RUSSIA—SERBIA: PERSPECTIVES OF ECONOMIC COOPERATION

11:00-12:15 Pavilion G, Conference Hall G22
Traditional friendship, cultural, linguistic and religious similarity and closeness characterize Russian-Serbian relations. Russia is a strategic, political and economic partner, as well as one of the leading foreign trade partners of Serbia. Serbia was and to this day remains Russia's key partner in South-Eastern Europe. However, are good political relations and an active political dialogue at the highest level accompanied by equally good economic cooperation? Which areas of the Serbian market are the ones that could use stronger presence of Russian companies and Russian capital, where are the unused hidden potentials? Are there any other areas Serbian economy has to offer for further developing and collaboration, besides the already traditional agricultural products export and construction services? Perhaps tourism and the auto industry?

We will continue further liberalizing our trade relationship with the Russian Federation and are also looking for opportunities to create special economic zones for Russian producers.

Ivica Dacic
Acting Prime Minister, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia

Serbia is not just a partner for us – it is a friendly nation, so our main objective is to translate our bilateral relations into economic pragmatism.

Dmitry Rogozin
Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation

Serbia enjoys an advantageous strategic and geographical position, which has a favourable impact on any large-scale transport or geographical projects that, in turn, could serve as a catalyst to attract investment from neighboring countries and from Southern Europe.

Dmitry Rogozin
Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation

Serbia’s geographical location helps us develop maritime logistics to facilitate further exports of products to the European and Asian markets.

Branislav Nedimovic
Minister of Agriculture and Environmental Protection of the Republic of Serbia

We can see a big potential for cooperation with Serbia in the areas of manufacturing, energy and agriculture, with subsequent entry into third country markets.
