07.02.2022. - Belgrade to receive a Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Prime Minister Ana Brnabic attended today in Geneva the signing of the Agreement on the Establishment of the World Economic Forum Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution in Serbia, the first of its kind in the Western Balkans.

The agreement was signed at the headquarters of that forum by Director of the Office for Information Technologies and eGovernment Mihailo Jovanovic and Managing Director and Head of the Forum's Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution Jeremy Jurgens.

The centre in Serbia will be the 16th in the network of centres of the World Economic Forum in the world and the first in the region of the Western Balkans.

The new centre will start operating on 1 March and will function as a non-profit organisation and a platform for public-private partnership and cooperation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, while the focus of work will be on artificial intelligence and bioengineering.

This centre will work within the Serbian government’s Office for Information Technologies and eGovernment and will cooperate with scientific institutes, state institutions and the private sector.

The signing of this document was also attended by founder and Executive Director of the World Economic Forum Klaus Schwab and President of the World Economic Forum Borge Brende, with whom Brnabic had previously met.

Addressing the press, Brnabic pointed out that this agreement is the result of many years of joint work between Serbia and the World Economic Forum.

We started talking in 2018, signed a Memorandum of Understanding, then 2020 hampered us a bit, but we continued to plan in 2021 and here we are today, she said.

According to her, the centre will be focused on the development of artificial intelligence, biomedicine and biotechnology, and on the ways in which digitalisation can raise the productivity of companies and the entire economy.

This is what further leads to higher salaries, a better standard of living, as well as to an economy that is mainly based on knowledge, creativity and innovation, Brnabic emphasised.

Today, we have received great recognition for everything that Serbia has done in the field of digitalisation, development of high technologies and paradigm shift – from an economy that was based on labour-intensive investments to digital development.
That is why this agreement shows that Serbia has been recognised as one of the leaders in the economy and IT industry in the last six years, the Prime Minister pointed out and assessed that this is the announcement of the beginning of an even closer cooperation between Serbia and WEF.

She added that they will have a joint meeting with the 16 WEF centres for the fourth industrial revolution in the world every month, at which they will talk about what each of them is doing, since each has a different focus.

That is how we will hear what everyone is doing every month, learn from each other and I am sure that the centre in Belgrade will be one of the best, the Prime Minister said.

According to her, this gives us visibility, the opportunity to further establish Serbia as an investment destination, a country good for living and investing in new technologies and knowledge.

Jovanovic said that the ecosystem formed around the centre will use the infrastructure of the National Platform for the Development of Artificial Intelligence, the Centre for Genome Sequencing and the future bioeconomic centre – BIO4 Campus.

11.1.2022. - Serbia doing everything to ensure that Novak Djokovic has dignified treatment in Australia

 

Prime Minister Ana Brnabic talked last night with Prime Minister of Australia Scott Morrison.

In a telephone conversation, Brnabic and Morrison exchanged all information about the current situation regarding the best tennis player in the world, Novak Djokovic, who was approved to enter the country by an Australian court yesterday.

Brnabic asked that Novak Djokovic be treated fairly by the Australian authorities, and that all his rights be respected.

The Prime Minister especially emphasised the importance of the conditions for training and physical preparation for the upcoming competition, considering that Novak Djokovic was not allowed to train in the previous days, and the tournament in Melbourne starts this weekend.

Prime Minister Brnabic also asked Morrison to be in direct contact in the coming days and for the government of Serbia and the government of Australia to exchange all information directly.

Prime Minister Morrison accepted this proposal, and an agreement was reached for the two prime ministers to talk again in the coming days.

Brnabic asked her Australian colleague to do everything in his power, so that Novak Djokovic would have human and dignified treatment in Australia, for the entire duration of his stay.

 

The Prime Minister emphasised that the Republic of Serbia is fully ready to provide all guarantees to Australia, if they are needed.


Verbal protest to the Ambassador of Australia for the treatment of Novak Djokovic

The Ambassador of Australia to Serbia, Daniel Emery, received a verbal protest at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Serbia on January 06th, due to the inappropriate treatment to which the best tennis player in the world and a citizen of Serbia, Novak Djokovic, was exposed in Melbourne.

State Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Serbia Nemanja Starovic expressed the expectation that Ambassador Emery will make personal efforts to enable Djokovic to wait for a court decision on whether he can stay in Australia in accommodation that is adequate for an athlete of his rank.

According to him, Serbia does not want to influence the upcoming decision of the Australian judiciary in any way, but expects that the executive authorities of that country, in the spirit of good bilateral relations between Australia and Serbia, and in accordance with their competencies, will allow Djokovic to spend Christmas in better accommodation.

He emphasized that the Serbian public has a strong impression that Djokovic is a victim of the political game, against his will, and that he was lured to travel to Australia in order to be humiliated.

State Secretary Starović pointed out that Novak Đoković is not a criminal, terrorist or illegal migrant, but that he was treated that way by the Australian authorities, which causes understandable indignation of his fans and citizens of Serbia.

The day before, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Serbia sent a protest note to the Embassy of Australia in Belgrade, and our Embassy in Canberra sent a protest note to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Australia.
