Ana Brnabic, the newly appointed Prime Minister and congratulated her on her appointment as Prime Minister of Serbia. Prime Minister Brnabic stressed the importance of the traditional and friendly relations between the two countries in the year when India and Serbia are celebrating 70 years of establishing diplomatic relations and expressed gratitude for India’s continued support for Serbia’s territorial integrity and sovereignty.

Prime Minister Brnabic and Ambassador discussed possibilities of further enhancing bilateral economic cooperation and investments. Ambassador briefed Prime Minister Brnabic about India’s flagship project "Digital India" which aims to modernize the Indian economy and to radically transform the quality of governance by the creative use of digital technology. Ambassador offered India’s assistance and cooperation to Serbia in the field of digitalization and IT sector which are amongst the priorities set by the Serbian government.

Prime Minister Brnabic and Ambassador also discussed ongoing cooperation and potentials in the tourism sector, film making industry, agriculture & food processing and the defense industry. Indian companies have expressed interest to invest in Serbia in Agro-machinery, pharma and infrastructure.

India and Serbia have traditionally enjoyed deep friendship as co-founders of the NAM and relations are marked by mutual trust and understanding. The bilateral cooperation received a significant boost at the beginning of 2017 when Hon’ble Aleksandar Vucic visited India for Vibrant Gujarat Summit and held discussions with Indian Prime Minister and business community. The visit has opened new doors of cooperation to mutual benefit.
