Roadmap to EU: Economic Summit in Belgrade, 17th -18th October

On 17th and 18th of October, Belgrade will host the 16th Serbian Economic Summit called The Road Map to EU – Rebooting the Economy, the press statement of TGI Group International states.

Some of the speakers that will address the conference participants who will gather at the Metropol Palace Hotel will include the European Parliament Rapporteur for Serbia David McAllister, the Head of the EU Delegation to Serbia Michael Davenport, EBRD Director Daniel Berg, the Russian Ambassador Alexander Chepurin, the French Ambassador Christine Moro, and the German Ambassador Axel Dittmann.

The participation of the Republic of Srpska President Milorad Dodik, Serbian ministers Ivica Dacic, Zorana Mihajlovic, Dusan Vujovic, Ana Brnabic, Jadranka Joksimovic and more than sixty other prominent speakers from Serbia and the region has also been announced.

This year’s Serbian Economic Summit of the Republic of Serbia will focus on the policy issues and actions that will be taken by the new Government of Serbia following the general election of 24th April this year. As Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic has already announced, the key priority of the new Serbian Government will be expediting the country’s accession to the European Union, and Serbia continuing along its path to the EU membership despite the UK’s vote to leave the European Union.

On the economy front, the new Serbian Government will focus on furthering the macroeconomic stability of Serbian economy and implementing all required reforms with a goal of creating a sustainable economic growth, reducing the unemployment, promoting investments in the infrastructure and tourism sector, boosting efficiency in education, healthcare and public sector, and attracting more foreign investments in important economic segments like energy and agriculture.
