There are more than 1,600 companies registered in Serbia owned by Italian nationals which employ more than 50,000 workers, of which 39,000 directly and 12,000 hired as spin-off employees or through recruitment agencies, according to the study “Italian companies in Serbia. A success story”.
The study, written in collaboration with the Italian-Serbian Chamber of Commerce and the Italian Embassy in Belgrade, will be presented today during the visit of the Italian Deputy Foreign Minister, Ivan Scalfarotto to Belgrade, or during his meeting at the Embassy with Italian businesspeople in Serbia.
The study also states that Italy has confirmed its leading position in terms of number and volume of investments in Serbia, and that many of the companies operating in Serbia have increased their investments while new investors are constantly arriving.

Serbia is home to both large Italian companies and many small and medium-sized enterprises. They operate in numerous sectors, such as agriculture, automotive, textile and clothing production, information technology, but also in the industrial production, consulting and catering services, as well as banking and insurance.
The Ambassador of Italy to Serbia, Carlo Lo Cascio, says that Italian companies in Serbia contribute to the development of bilateral relations between the two countries with their investments and business.
“This study confirms Italy’s leading position in terms of making investments in Serbia and the great partnership with Serbia, a country that has welcomed us,” said Giorgio Marchegiani, President of the Italian-Serbian Chamber of Commerce.
