BELGRADE – The volume of trade with Germany totalled EUR 3.536 billion last year, making the country Serbia’s second most significant foreign trade partner, Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said Wednesday.


At the first session of a dialogue as part of the German-Serbian initiative for sustainable growth and employment, Vucic said that Germany is getting closer to becoming Serbia’s number one partner, as indicated by many parameters.

German investments in Serbia total EUR 1.7 billion, with donations amounting to nearly as much – EUR 1.6 billion – for which Serbia is grateful to Germany, Vucic noted.

German companies are welcome in Serbia – not only to assist, but also to make profit, he said.

Serbia could learn much from Germany, Vucic noted, adding that he has asked German partners to help people in Serbia learn how to act differently and how to change themselves.
