The Ambassador of the Republic of Serbia to the United States, Marko Djuric, opened the Serbian-American Economic Forum, which is being held for the first time in Las Vegas.

In his introductory address, Djuric emphasized that our country saw great potential for strengthening ties with the business community in Nevada as the host state of this Forum, and we warmly welcomed all partners in the implementation of future successful endeavors.

"Serbia is now a country with beautiful stories of overall progress, dynamic development, and healthy ambitions. From doubling the GDP in just a few years and attracting the majority of regional investments to the most modern factories, high-speed trains, a new network of highways, free trade, and increasing the number of 'Air Serbia' airline routes with the West and East, the rise in the standard of living for citizens, to the golden goal for 2027 in the form of the world exhibition 'Expo', of which we are proud hosts and are already actively working on its preparations", Djuric emphasized.

He also stressed that in all of the above, economic cooperation between Serbia and the US was of particular importance, and the positive contribution to the further development of our business and economic relations was already reflected in the participants of today's meeting.

Officials from the state of Nevada and the city of Las Vegas presented Ambassador Djuric with an award expressing gratitude to the Embassy of the Republic of Serbia in Washington for its contribution to promoting and strengthening trade, tourism, and investment ties, as well as overall cooperation between Serbia and the US.

The first Serbian-American Economic Forum in Las Vegas, organized by the Strategic Euro-American League (S.E.A.L.), focused on encouraging diaspora engagement in strengthening bilateral economic relations.
