Italian companies operating in Serbia participated in a meeting with the Minister of Finance, Siniša Mali, with the attendance of Italian Ambassador Carlo Lo Cascio. The meeting was organised by the Italian-Serbian Chamber of Commerce with the aim of tackling the principal financial and tax issues of greatest interest for the companies operating in the Country. In his opening remarks, Ambassador Lo Cascio pointed out: “Italian companies in Serbia represent very large economic interests and this is why it is of paramount importance to be able to dialogue with the Ministry of Finance and with the Tax Agency, in order to assure the best possible conditions for the viability of Italian investments in the Country.” He added that it was necessary to make a “joint effort that implies utmost commitment and professionalism not only at institutional, but also at corporate level.”
The meeting with Minister Mali is the second with a member of the Serbian government after the meeting with the Minister of Labour Djordjevic organised as part of the “Business breakfast with the Minister” cycle promoted by the Italian-Serbian Chamber of Commerce. The aim is to facilitate interactive meetings in which companies can make proposals relative to economic, commercial and administrative activities. Ambassador Lo Cascio remarked: “Initiatives like today’s confirm the fruitful synergy that Italy’s economic system in Serbia can generate to favour our companies through a structured cooperation with Serbian Institutions.”
