Ambassador of Israel to Serbia Alona Fisher Kamm said that Israeli investments in Serbia exceeded one billion euros. She added that the interest of Israeli companies, primarily in the energy sector, “clean technologies” and water treatment technologies, has increased.
“Since 2000, billions of euros have been invested in the real estate sector, while tourism for the first six months of this year has recorded an increase of 300% compared to the first half of last year,” she said. She added that in 2017, Serbia was visited by about 20,000 tourists from Israel, and that the number of tourists is expected to be more than 50,000 this year. She estimated that Jewish heritage is important for Israeli tourists in Serbia, so tourists visit these historic monuments. She added that “Serbia is an ideal destination because of its proximity, good offer of restaurants, fun night life, a combination of natural beauties – mountains, rivers, spas, and similar mentality. She reminded that the Israeli company recently signed an agreement on participation in the Kovačica wind farm, where about 200 million euros were invested.
