In a meeting with the head of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) Suma Chakrabarti in Geneva on Friday, Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vucic said his country’s economy was improving and that the National Investment Plan was good for the continuation of that process, the Beta news agency reported, citing Vucic’s office statement.

The two discussed global economic growth in the Western Balkans and the EBRD projects in Serbia.

The statement quoted Chakrabarti as saying the EBRD supported the regional economic zone initiative. He congratulated Vucic on “excellent economic results,” adding Serbia was among five countries the EBRD had the best results, the statement said.

Vucic also met with the President of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Børge Brende and Martina N. Larkin, the head of Europe and Eurasia and member of the WEF Executive Committee.

His office statement quoted him as telling the two he hoped that in cooperation with WEF, the Regional Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution would be opened in Serbia next year.

“Serbia puts a lot of efforts in improving the business environment in the country, and I hope that is reflected in the WEF reports. Belgrade is ready to organise an annual gathering under the WEF auspices,” Vucic said according to the statement.

Speaking to the pro-government Pink TV in Geneva, Vucic said he was ready to talk to the members of the Parliament about the country’s foreign policy “to define it and see where we go to.”

He said he was proud of Serbia’s position, that he always said what he thought, and was not ashamed of the country’s cooperation with Russia and China.
