He added that he is proud of the projects and investments in Serbia in many areas and said that the common goal of these projects is the promotion of sustainability and the development of human resources.

“Today, I am most sincerely grateful for the support of more than 20 companies that exhibit exhibits of some of those high-quality products and projects in front of the entrance of this hall,” he said.
