Serbian Foreign Minister, Nikola Selaković, said that 24 Hungarian companies will invest 130 million euro in Serbia in the coming period, adding that the money will not only be invested in Vojvodina, but in other parts of Serbia.
At a joint press conference with his Hungarian counterpart, Péter Szijártó, in Budapest, Selakovic thanked Hungary for supporting its companies to invest in the Serbian market and underlined that those investments would further strengthen economic cooperation between the two countries.
Selaković also said that his visit to Hungary was the first visit to a neighbouring country in his capacity as the foreign minister, adding that Serbia had built friendly relations with Hungary, as good neighbours, in the previous period.

“Today’s meeting is an opportunity to establish friendly relations and to talk about what binds us and what can bind us even more,” he said.
During the meeting, energy and better gas supply for both Hungary and Serbia were also discussed.
Selaković mentioned that Serbia has completed the construction of its part of the gas pipeline stretching from the Bulgarian to the Hungarian border and expressed hope that Hungary will receive gas from the TurkStream gas pipeline in two years when the country is due to complete its leg of the pipeline.
The two officials also discussed infrastructure, more precisely the construction of a high-speed railway from Belgrade to Budapest, which should contribute to a better flow of goods and people, greater competitiveness, but also more frequent, safe and faster travel for tourists.
