President Vučić participates in the World Economic Forum in Geneva
President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vućić said today at a Strategic Dialogue on the Western Balkans Summit organised by the World Economic Forum, that Serbia is continuing with reforms to the benefit of its citizens and its future.
"It is important for us to get the precise and clear answers as to what kind of future Europe wishes for in the region. It is good that they have confirmed the clear and unequivocal support to the European path of all our countries. We will continue the reforms for our citizens and our future," said President Vučić.
President Vučić stressed that Serbia will proceed with the reforms because of our citizens and our aspiration to be the member of the European Union.
"I did not hide that we will continue to cooperate and work with everyone and thus boost our economy," the President said, adding that he had excellent talks with the EBRD President and that he expects us to become the seat of the Fourth Industrial Revolution of the World Economic Forum.
"We want to enhance our economy. We want to continue the accelerated growth. We will keep our growth at over 3.6 percent. They have reduced it for the Euro zone from 1.3 to 1.1 percent", said President Vučić.
President Vučić said that a decision has to be made as to who can join the EU fast, who cannot, or whether the access to the structural funds can be obtained if we close or open a chapter, or whether it belongs to the single economic market.
During his visit, President Vučić also met with the President and Member of the Managing Board of the World Economic Forum Børge Brende, Director for Regional Strategies - Europe and Eurasia and Member of the Executive Board of the World Economic Forum Martina Larkin and President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development Sumo Chakrabarti.
