The 2nd InterConnect Regional Conference, which was held in Belgrade yesterday, gathered 17 global companies that came to Serbia with only one goal - to create a business in our country, said Marko Čadež, the President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia.

Čadež stated that the annual turnover of companies whose representatives are participating in B2B meetings with Serbian businessmen is over 30 billion euros.
"These are all large companies, such as thyssenkrupp Automotive, Roche Diagnostics, DBW, EAO, SAG Tubi, Skylotec, and Plast-Met, which have something to offer, and I believe that our businessmen also have something to offer in return." We expect new contracts and a lot of work," Čadež pointed out.
CCIS President said that companies come from numerous EU countries such as Germany, Italy, Poland, and others and that they are serious buyers looking for suppliers from Serbia and the region.


"The companies that came have more than 30 billion euros turnover and they are really serious customers." The most important thing is for our companies to be able to enter supply chains because the rules adopted in Germany, the Law on Due Diligence and Supply Chains, present new challenges to companies and they need to adopt certain standards," explains Čadež.
In order to assist our companies to prepare and adapt to new legal solutions in Germany, which are also expected at the EU level in the upcoming period, CCIS launched the Responsible Business Hub, Čadež pointed out.
"We trained people who were in Germany and went into the details of the new law to help our businessmen. Anyone who wants to export goods to Germany and the EU should come to us in CCIS and will receive full support and information on how to meet the requirements to be able to do business in that market, because it is one of the big challenges for our economy at the moment, especially for small and medium-sized enterprises," said Čadež.
Representatives of 110 companies and institutions from Serbia, as well as guests from the region and the EU, are participating in the two-day conference at the Metropol Hotel.
Brooke Aysham, director of the USAID Mission in Serbia, said that Serbian companies have enormous potential for growth through expanded trade.

"We especially want to cooperate with small and medium-sized enterprises from the machinery and equipment sector in Serbia so that they too can realize their export potential." For this to happen, they need to look beyond reducing production costs and compete in areas such as innovation, environmental protection, and sustainable business," Aysham pointed out.



Matijas Loidold, Director of Convestenics and one of the organizers of the conference said that more than 200 B2B meetings were scheduled and held between Serbian and 17 European companies who were looking for suppliers and that he expected successful results of the conference and new business deals.
The regional B2B conference InterConnect, held in Belgrade on April 26 and 27, is a unique opportunity for representatives of large, medium, and small companies from Serbia and the region to connect with managers of global companies and learn all about the latest trends, challenges, and solutions in areas of sustainability of production processes and supply chains and current challenges of global trade and industry.


The conference is organized by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia and the company Convestensics, with the support of the "Big Small Economy" project financed by USAID and implemented by the organization ACDI/VOCA.
