Vucic visits Delphi Packard in Novi Sad

Serbian PM Aleksandar Vucic visited the Delphi Packard plant in Novi Sad, which manufactures electric and electronic equipment for passenger and commercial vehicles.

Accompanied by Delphi Vice-President for Europe, Middle East and Africa Vincent Fagard, Minister of Economy Goran Knezevic, Vojvodina PM Igor Mirovic and Novi Sad Mayor Milos Vucevic, Vucic was greeted by a large number of citizens who gathered at the gate of the factory complex.

The Novi Sad plant is looking to expand and add more workers to its 1,500-strong workforce.

The Republic of Serbia, the city of Novi Sad and Delphi signed an incentives agreement for a new facility in Novi Sad in February this year. At first, the production was in a temporary location but has been subsequently moved to a renovated facility.

The Gillingham, UK-based Delphi Automotive PLC has factories in 44 countries worldwide.

Serbian PM also announced major government investments into IT and scientific and technological development, including 8-10 mln EUR for training young IT professionals.

“We do not have a sufficient number of IT engineers or workers in certain locations,” Vucic told reporters.

We want to show that Serbia wants to be a modern country that is following, and catching up with, trends in other countries of the world, Vucic said, adding that he believed Serbia would also catch up with, and overtake, countries that are 40 percent more developed than it is now.
