Serbian Ambassador to the United States Marko Djuric, who today presented Serbia's economic potential at the renowned Washington hotel "Willard", stated that US companies had sent an important message condemning the government of Albin Kurti for imposing a blockade on Serbian goods, RTV reports.

Officials from the Office of the US Trade Representative, representatives from Congress and federal US institutions, as well as representatives from companies such as Oracle, Mastercard, PepsiCo, Airbnb, Citi, and many others, attended the event at the Willard Hotel, where the concept of lobbying originated.

Djuric emphasized that an important message heard from representatives of US companies was the condemnation of the trade embargo and blockades on Serbian goods implemented by the regime of Albin Kurti.

"Some US companies, even some US mega-brands, are suffering financial consequences due to Kurti's actions," Djuric told Tanjug.

Djuric highlighted that Serbian representatives had met with members of the Business Council for International Understanding, established by former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

"The Council gathers leaders from the business community, leading companies in the US, as well as influential figures in politics, including members of Congress, the Senate, individuals from the academic community, and this was a great opportunity for us to present the case for investment and connectivity with Serbia in a very concrete way," Djuric pointed out.

The Serbian Ambassador to the US emphasized that during the roundtable discussion, he had presented Serbia's new investments for Expo 2027, as well as the development of new technologies, infrastructure, and progress in the energy sector in Serbia.

Peter Tichansky from the Business Council for International Understanding stated that Serbia was an underappreciated place with significant human potential and an IT sector that US companies were still discovering.

"I think it's clear that the Serbian economy is the strongest in the region and that there is potential for further development in the future," Tichansky emphasized.
