Mihajlovic and Rosocha on organizing a meeting between Slovak companies and the Ministry of Mining and Energy
Deputy Prime Minister of the Government of Serbia and Minister of Mining and Energy, prof. Zorana Mihajlovic, phD, talked today with the Ambassador of Slovakia to Serbia, H.E. Fedor Rosocha about the improvement of economic relations between the two countries, especially in the field of energy efficiency and RES.
During the meeting, the Deputy Prime Minister and the Slovak Ambassador agreed that excellent relations between the two countries should be accompanied by better economic cooperation, especially when it comes to the business of companies from this country on the Serbian market.
"With the new laws in the field of mining and energy, which were adopted last year, Serbia has created a more favorable framework for investments, which opens space for new investments." The Law on the Use of RES is especially important, the first such law in Serbia, which is the basis for increasing the capacity for energy production from renewable sources, and companies from Slovakia are also welcome in this area. "Improving energy efficiency and the projects we are implementing in that area are also key segments of our energy policy," said Mihajlovic.
It was agreed at the meeting to intensify talks on the development of new technologies, as well as to organize a joint conference at which Serbian and Slovak companies will present potentials and opportunities for cooperation in the field of improving energy efficiency and the use of RES.
"Serbia and Slovakia certainly have a common interest in improving economic relations," said the intergovernmental commission for economic cooperation organized last year in Bratislava. "There are numerous companies that are interested in participating in the Serbian market," Rosocha said.
During the meeting, they also talked about the situation related to the energy crisis caused by the war in Ukraine and the need for diversification in the gas sector.
