BELGRADE - Serbian Minister of Innovation and Technological Development Nenad Popovic on Monday met with Chen Hui, executive vice president of the China-Europe Association for Technical and Economic Cooperation (CEATEC).

Presenting the potentials for investing in Serbia's innovation and new technologies sector, Popovic called on Chinese and European companies to invest in Serbia as much as possible.

Serbian IT service exports totalled 1.135 bln euros last year, hitting a new record, Popovic noted.

"The record was broken with a 26 pct growth of exports compared to 2017," he said, adding that Serbia was investing 60 mln euros in six capital innovation infrastructure facilities at the country's university hubs.

Such investments will make Serbia a leader in innovation in this part of Europe, he said.

Chen said CEATEC had noted Serbia's accelerated innovation development and was interested in directing Chinese businesses towards investing in Serbia, in particular in the innovation and new technologies sector.
