BELGRADE - Serbian companies are completely ready for entering the African market, Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic said during Monday's meeting with Chairperson of the African Union Commission Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, noting that the presence of the Serbian economy in Africa used to be considerable, mostly owing to the collaboration on construction projects.

“Serbian companies are fully ready for operating in the African market, and the decades-long friendship, forged in the toughest years of the fight for independence and freedom of African peoples, is a guarantee that our joint business projects will yield fruit and bring about prosperity for both Serbia and Africa,” Nikolic said.

Zuma underlined that the friendship binding Serbia and African peoples is very strong. The main objective of African states is to ensure a better future for all citizens, especially young people. In that sense, the support we get from our traditional friends such as Serbia is very important, she said.

President Nikolic thanked his guest on the African Union's principled stand in relation to the protection of the territorial integrity of the Republic of Serbia.
