At the same time, it was, after 27 years, the return of French tour operators to Serbia and its tourist offer, resulting from the great interest of French tourists in our country, which is manifested through the most famous French agencies specialised not only in individual tourist offers but also in group travel. Sladjana Novaković, president of the “I love France” Association, as the main initiator of the renewal of international tourist cooperation between our two countries, says that the re-establishment of strong tourist cooperation “undoubtedly helps the overall improvement of relations between the two countries, including not only tourism and culture, but also economic bilateral relations.
