Serbia’s Prime Minister Ana Brnabić said yesterday that three or four new investments would be made in Serbia as a result of the first day of talks she had in New York with representatives of under-45 American companies.
“I am very satisfied. I will return from New York with promises of at least three or four new investments for our companies and young talent,” Brnabić told reporters.
At the meeting with an elite global organisation that brings together presidents, owners and members of the top management of highly successful companies under the age of 45, Brnabić informed those present about Serbia’s achievements in the IT sector.
“People want to come to Serbia, and redirect the investments they had planned in other parts of the world, such as India, to Serbia,” Brnabić said and added that the American companies were mostly interested in investing in the IT sector, start-ups, biotechnology and biomedicine.
She added that those investments are not classic investments but are rather made by investment funds. “They will provide money for our talented and smart people who have companies, which will help them to continue growing and developing,” she added.
According to the PM, after returning to Serbia, there is still a lot of work to be done to confirm everything.
Brnabic also expressed satisfaction with the fact that the executives from the blockchain company, Gilded, with whom she spoke earlier, expressed interest in Serbia and in the fact that Serbia provides high level of data protection and guarantees transactions without the possibility of abuse.
“In the years to come, Gilded will be one of the biggest and most advanced companies. If we bring them to Serbia, we will be able to position ourselves on the global fin-tech market, and in trading in gold,” she concluded.
