Chief Executive Officer of Victoria Group attends the 2013 Economic Summit

Victoria Group Chief Executive Officer Zoran Mitrović took part in the panel discussion “The necessary reforms to achieve macroeconomic stability” that took place as part of the 13th Economic Summit of the Republic in Serbia, held earlier this week at the Metropol Palace Hotel.

Speaking about the key factors that impact the economic stability of the country, Zoran Mitrović highlighted the importance of harmonising domestic legislation in the field of food production and processing with the European frameworks, which would open the doors wide open to the European Union for Serbian products. Mitrović indicated that the Government and the line ministry are expected to enable the economy to use the European Union's pre-accession funds for agriculture, which had significantly increased the competitiveness of new EU member states, and that it was necessary to additionally stimulate the development of the competitiveness of agricultural produce with budget resources, with the ultimate goal of achieving a larger share for products with a higher value than raw materials in foreign trade, which will contribute to the foreign trade balance.

The panel discussion was also attended by Branislav Grujić, President of PSP Farman, Aleksandar Vlahović, President of the Serbian Association of Economists, Darko Popović, Member of the Executive Board of Banca Intesa, and Mihailo Janković, Chief Executive Officer of Knjaz Miloš.
