We see FIC as an important factor in shaping of the business environment in Serbia. The voice of foreign investors needs to be articulated and heard, and there we see the potential of FIC. We value activities of various committees within FIC in improving and proposing new legislation aimed at improving overall business climate in Serbia. In this period, it is vitally important to cooperate closely with the Serbian administration in order to overcome difficulties and obstacles which may occur in relations with foreign investors.
