Ana Brnabic, Serbia’s Prime Minister, said on Tuesday that Switzerland was her country’s great partner and helped it to introduce a dual education which had been successfully implemented, the Beta news agency said.
In a meeting with the President of the Swiss Confederation Ulrich "Ueli" Maurer in Berne, Brnabic said the partnership between two countries was based on Serbia’s Government priorities which she said were investments in education, science, research, development, innovation and digitalisation, a statement from her office said.
She recalled that Switzerland helped Serbia to build the first scientific-technological park which employed over 700 engineers in 70 companies.
“At this moment we are investing over 100 million Euros in infrastructure for research and development, finishing the building of the scientific-technological park in (the northern city) Novi Sad, constructing the one in (southern city) of Nis and developing the other in (central town) Cacak. Switzerland will continue to help those centres across Serbia,” Brnabic said.
She added she and Maurer agreed that their countries should meet twice a year and focus on political and economic parts of cooperation to increase investments into the researches and development in Serbia.
