Prime Minister Ana Brnabic says that relations between Serbia and Slovenia are “good and friendly”. Slovenia is one of Serbia’s largest economic partners and provides strong support to Serbia on its European path and its experience in many areas is of exceptional importance useful for Serbia, primarily in the local administration, she said late on Sunday. On the eve of the Strategic Forum in Bled, Brnabic met with Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Administration Boris Koprivnikar, with whom she discussed a number of issues related to the promotion of the cooperation of the two countries, especially on how to become more modern, more advanced and more helpful to citizens, the Serbian government announced. Brnabic stressed that “it is very important to mention that Slovenia is a true advocate of the EU enlargement and European integration of Serbia and that it offers great support to our country on this path”. Boris Koprivnikar said he was looking forward to continuing cooperation with Brnabic, and explained that the projects being worked on “are aimed at better functioning of the entire government and the public sector”.
