BELGRADE - In Monday's discussion with Norwegian FM Ine Eriksen Soreide, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said affirmation of regional cooperation and stronger economic ties in the region were one of the key priorities for Serbia and that the experiences of the Nordic Council as a unique example of strong regional cooperation could serve as an example for forging ties in the Western Balkans.

Vucic also expressed gratitude for Norway's donations and development aid to Serbia and expressed interest in cooperation in new projects such as a programme for young entrepreneurs, which help economic growth and the building of entrepreneurial spirit, the presidential press office said in a statement.

Eriksen Soreide said Norwegian companies operating in Serbia were satisfied with the conditions for doing business, and expressed the expectation they would serve as an example to other investors.

Vucic and the Norwegian minister agreed bilateral ties were characterised by developed political dialogue and great possibilities for development of economic cooperation.
