On that occasion, president of Switzerland said that digitization and new industrial revolution are in the act, which will radically change our lives. Therefore, science and technology can significantly improve our society, especially in economic sense.
Addressing the meeting, Prime Minister Vucic spoke about the economic successes of Serbia, the situation in the region, the migrant crisis, elections in the United States, a referendum in Italy, the changes in Bulgaria, economic cooperation with China and Emirates, the European way and the upcoming elections in Serbia.
- I was thinking how to present my country in the best way. For the last 17 years we had no wars, which is a record. Many wars have gone over our territory, we have lost many people. Today we are on the right way, the way of economic recovery. We were on the verge of economic survival, and now we have surplus. This is a third year since we are in the MMF arrangement, we have a economic growth of 2.8 % and we hope for better. We have made significant progress in the Doing Business list. We stand firmly on the European track, and next week some other chapters in the process of European integration will be opened. Today, Serbia has a good business environment for all foreign investors. We have the best city in the region, open for tourists from all countries. We invite you all to come and see for yourself - said Vucic.
Stressing the importance of dual education, Serbian Prime Minister said:
- One of the most important things for me in the coming period is the reform of our educational system. I want more integration between the needs of the future labor market and today's educational process. I want dual education in which the students themselves put the knowledge they hear on lectures on trials in business practice so they could say to professors - no, that doesn't work in practice, the way to do it is more simple, better, different, look what we have learned!
- To make this possible, we have to create enough strong companies willing to participate in the reforms, to offer practice to young people before the end of formal education - concluded PM Vucic.
