Within the 62nd International Fair of Techniques and Technological Achievements in Belgrade on May 22, the Slovenian Business Club and the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Serbia organized a panel discussion on the topic “Industry 4.0 Slovenia-Serbia Digital Transformation of the Economy”. The panel was opened by Mr Danijela Fišakov, President of the SPK, and Goran Križ, Economic Advisor at the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia, addressed the audience.
Participants at this year’s panel discussion were representatives of successful companies in Serbia: Eti B, Tehnoplast,
RLS Measuring Technique, Resalta, Grah Automotive and Serbian Blockchain Initiative. The panel talked about whether the state is following the economic trends of Industry 4.0, as well as the potential for Serbia to become a significant exporter of software solutions and technically demanding products, how active we are in the digital transformation of the economy and how people in companies accept new technologies in this case, Industry 4.0.
The conclusion of this year’s panel is that it is certainly necessary to enter the process of digitization, but also that it is possible only step by step, as it is a long process to complete digitization of one company.
