VUCIC, OUTGOING CANADIAN AMBASSADOR: INFLOW OF CANADIAN INVESTMENT HAS GROWN

BELGRADE, 10 August 2017 (Beta) - Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and outgoing Canadian Ambassador to Serbia Philip Pinnington agreed on Aug. 10 that the inflow of Canadian investments in Serbia had increased, but that it would be useful to inform Canadian businesspeople about the economic situation in Serbia as well as the possibilities for investment. A statement from the Serbian Presidency said that Vucic had voiced his expectations that economic cooperation would grow, especially in the areas of mining and tourism, which an agreement on air traffic and opening a direct air route between the two countries should help achieve. Vucic, who held a farewell meeting with Pinnington, thanked the ambassador for his cooperation and personal contribution to developing relations between Serbia and Canada.

BELGRADE HAILS ZAGREB'S DECISION TO SCRAP HIKED PHYTOSANITARY FEE

BELGRADE, 10 August 2017 (Beta) - The Serbian government on Aug. 10 welcomed Croatia's decision to scrap its hiked phytosanitary fee of EUR270 and bring it to the previous level of EUR12 per fruit or vegetable imported from third countries. Prime Minister Ana Brnabic described the decision as the only economically right move, as the hiked fee and unilateral decisions had affected all the countries in the region. "Bringing the fee to its previous level will contribute to easing relations between the countries in the region. Cooperation in all fields is important for stability, and particularly for boosting economic growth," Brnabic said, according to a press release from the government. She appealed to all sides to in the future refrain from unilateral moves, without prior consultations and agreements with neighbors. "Over the past few days, we confirmed that all problems and outstanding issues can be resolved through dialogue, which is what Serbia always insists on, particularly in cooperation with its neighbors," she said. Minister of Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications Rasim Ljajic said that the government would maintain communication with the competent ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Macedonia.
