Prince Albert of Monaco said during his visit to Belgrade that the economic agreement signed on Wednesday would help expand contacts between Serbia and his principality.
Serbian Chamber of Commerce (PKS) President and Monaco Economic Board CEO Guillaume Rose signed a cooperation agreement following a meeting between the Prince and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.
The prince said that his visit is an opportunity to advace relations and added that the economic agreement will open the way to deeper and more concrete contacts. I am here to exchange views with President Vucic and Serbian officials about issues of common interest such as the environment, tourism, promoting the sustainable development of renewable energy sources, preserving biodiversity and the seas and oceans, he said.
Vucic said that both sides are determined to develop their relations in all fields. “Our two countries differ at first glance but they are two old European countries with rich histories and a freedom-loving spirit. This visit is historic in the relations between the two countries because it is Prince Albert’s first visit,” he said and added that he was honored to present the prince with The Order of the Republic of Serbia.
