“On the other hand, the Chamber will be focused on effectively representing the interests of member companies before governmental and non-governmental institutions, as well as in the public sphere. We will be a stable partner of the Serbian economy, as before, with a view of making a quality contribution to improving the business climate in the country, “said the newly appointed President of AHK Serbia, Udo Eichlinger, while thanking the Chamber members for giving the new management a vote of confidence.
Referring to the results of the Chamber’s work and activities in the previous period, the Director of the German-Serbian Chamber of Commerce, Martin Knapp, pointed out that the establishment of the joint chamber in 2016 sent a clear signal to the German business community that Serbia was a reliable partner.
“Through our Chamber of Commerce, we contribute daily to improving contacts with the German companies and promote the Serbian economy to German investors,” said Mr Knapp.
With 140 offices in 92 countries, the German-Serbian Chamber of Commerce (AHK Serbia) is a member of the system of German external trade and industrial chambers. AHK Serbia is the largest bilateral chamber of commerce in Serbia and an ideal platform for facilitating contacts between German, Serbian and international companies.
