Ana Brnabic in Germany – meetings with German business people to discuss lithium mining

Serbian Parliament Speaker Ana Brnabic, who is on an official trip to Germany, said on Wednesday she had had a large number of meetings during the visit.

Speaking to reporters in Berlin, Brnabic said German officials had praised Serbia and its economic growth and development, noting that what could be seen in Serbia was “impressive.”

She said bilateral trade with Germany had reached a record high in 2023, exceeding 9 billion euros, and that she expected the figure to rise further this year.

She also said it was important for the current Serbian parliament to have better communication with all members of the German Bundestag.

“We have many outstanding issues and many disagreements, but it is important to talk,” Brnabic said.

She went on to say that Serbia should learn from Germany’s example and come to a state where there were no political divisions over matters of national interest such as lithium mining and where all political parties supported national interests.

“I would like to invite German companies to think about what we could do together regarding renewable energy sources, large-scale energy storage systems, and battery technology production,” she added.

Brnabic presented Serbia’s economic indicators and cooperation with German companies, adding that she would like to hear from the Germans about the progress of their two major lithium extraction projects – Vulkan and Zinnwald.

“Like Germany, we too have lithium reserves. Germany is much smarter than Serbia and Germany will be a country that will produce lithium,” she said, adding she would like to see how they produce lithium in accordance with the highest environmental protection standards.
