Mihajlovic: Energy has the greatest potential for new investments and economic development

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Mining and Energy, prof. Zorana Mihajlovic, PhD, said at the conference "Energy in the Balkans: Transition to Renewable Energy Sources and Improving Energy Networks", that energy, especially the RES sector, is most important for economic development, investment and new jobs, especially in times of crisis.

At the conference, organized by the representative office of the Confederation of Italian Industry in Serbia, she pointed out that energy security in the coming decades is impossible to plan without caring for the environment and without cooperation and connections.

"Together with investors, our partners from Italy and the ambassador, we will discuss the improvement of bilateral relations, the improvement of cooperation in the energy sector." "Since 2009, Serbia and Italy have been strategic partners, close to 50,000 people are employed by Italian companies in our country, but it is important to increase investments in energy, primarily in RES," she said.

Deputy Prime Minister stated that energy and RES are naturally imposed as a sector that can bring economic growth, investments, new jobs.

"We have a completely new legislative framework, praised by the whole of Europe, especially the Law on the Use of RES. We have all the conditions for new investments and there is no time to wait, we need to start cooperating as soon as possible. "Now is the time to start a completely new investment cycle and for both the public sector and private companies to participate in it," she said.
