Review by Christos T. Panagopoulos –

Prime Minister, Alenka Bratušek, will pay her first official visit to Serbia on Wednesday, as part of which she will meet her Serbian counterpart, Ivica Dačić. The Slovenian and Serbian governments will also hold their first joint session as part of the visit.

Economy will be the primary issue in discussions with Serbian PM Dačić.

Bratušek will be accompanied several ministers and a small business delegation. The visit is dedicated to reviewing the possibilities for strengthening bilateral cooperation between the two governments in various fields.

Representatives of both governments will sign a number of bilateral agreements, which will help the countries take a step forward in strengthening bilateral relations, primarily in business, according to the PM’s office.

Slovenia will express its support to Serbia in its efforts to join the EU, emphasising the importance of the implementation of reforms and adopted agreements. The talks will also be an opportunity to exchange views on the current situation in the region.

Apart from PM Dačić, Bratušek will also separately meet Serbian President, Tomislav Nikolić and National Assembly Speaker, Nebojša Stefanović.

Bratušek and Dačić will also attend the opening of a Serbian-Slovenian business conference at the Serbian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and will visit Slovenian company Gorenje’s water heater plant in the town of Stara Pazova.
