The South Korean business-state delegation will visit Belgrade in the coming months and discuss direct business and how to improve economic ties in direct talks with Serbian businessmen and officials, Marko Čadež, President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia (CCIS), announced in Paris today.
Čadež talked with Tatjana Matić, Serbian Minister of Trade, and the representatives of the South Korean delegation, led by Ahn Duk-Geun, Minister of Trade at the Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy of South Korea, about cooperation in the production of batteries for electric cars, cooperation between companies in the field of solar panels and systems, and production and export opportunities of pork meat.
We have great opportunity to exchange experience, knowledge and concrete jobs in the most advanced technologies with South Korean businessmen, Čadež pointed out.
Speaking about the promotion of the candidacy of Serbia and Belgrade for the organization of the Specialized World Exhibition Expo 2027, he stated that we had the most complete concept of all the candidates.
In front of the delegates of the General Assembly of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), we presented together Belgrade, our industry and economy, young people who will drive our economy.
Great interest was expressed for Serbia as the only country on the European continent and among the 11 countries in the world that have compulsory programming in primary schools. "The second generation of small programmers is ending their school - about 120,000 children who learned to program in elementary school for the last four years and have become literate in the language of the future. This is something that is rare and not many countries have this in the world. In the years to come, those children will move our economy, innovations, the creative industry and will manage our companies," said Čadež. "They need to be given a chance and that was one of the messages we conveyed," the president of CCIS.
According to Čadež, we have a year ahead of us to fight for the organization of a big event. Every Expo exhibition is a way, not only to present our country but also to become a technological hub because Belgrade is the largest economic center from Ljubljana to Tirana that connects people and businesses, which is the main message of "Belgrade Expo 2027" - Belgrade Expo 2027 -Play together," said Čadež.
He emphasized that we live in a world and times that are fast-changing, uncertainties are great and the better we adapt to changes, the better our chances of success. One of our advantages is that we are used to adapting and that is what makes us special, perhaps the best example to deal with the challenges that lie ahead, says the president of the CCIS.
