Celebration of 120 years of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of Cuba

Near Havana, in Jaimanitas, on February 21, 2022, was inaugurated the Mural of Friendship of Serbia and Cuba, the work of Jose Fuster, a prestigious Cuban artist, and thus began a series of cultural and artistic activities celebrating 120 years of diplomatic relations.

Danilo Pantović, Ambassador of the Republic of Serbia to Havana, greeted the guests, representatives of Cuban state institutions, members of the diplomatic corps, head of the Russian Orthodox Church in Havana, friends from the field of social life, and representatives of the diaspora:

„4. November 2022 marks the 120th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of Cuba. This date was determined on the basis of a written congratulatory letter from the King of Serbia, Aleksandar Obrenović, dated November 4, 1902, addressed to Thomas Estrada Palma, President-elect of the Republic of Cuba, on the occasion of his inauguration.

From then until today, our relations have been relations of friendship, support and cooperation. Above all, in the last 63 years we have understood each other very well and we have been walking together on the international scene, supporting each other in areas that are of strategic importance for both countries, fighting to preserve the sovereignty and independence of our countries.

In the coming years, we will continue to strengthen our relations, especially in the field of trade and economic cooperation.

I am sure that friendly cooperation is our future and that our ties, as always, are the ties of brotherhood."

 

After the inauguration, a reception was organized for the guests at the Fuster Museum.

The celebration was covered by the domestic and international press, radio and TV (Granma, Prensa Latina, Cuban TV programs - Multivision, Noticiero Nacional, and Radio Taino, Venezuelan press, etc.).

Belgrade to get Center for Fourth Industrial Revolution

 

 

 

7 February 2022
 

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 center in Serbia will be the 16th in the network of centers of the World Economic Forum in the world and the first in the region of the Western Balkans.

The new center will start operating on 1 March and will function as a non-profit organization 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 center 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 center will be focused on the development of artificial intelligence, biomedicine and biotechnology, and on the ways in which digitalization 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 emphasized.

Today, we have received great recognition for everything that Serbia has done in the field of digitalization, 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 recognized 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 centers 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 center will use the infrastructure of the National Platform for the Development of Artificial Intelligence, the Centre for Genome Sequencing and the future bioeconomic center – BIO4 Campus.

UNESCO’s role extremely important for preservation of Serbian heritage in Kosovo and Metohija


12 November 2021

Prime Minister Ana Brnabic stated today that severe examples of endangering the Serbian cultural, historical and spiritual heritage in Kosovo and Metohija are proof of the important role of UNESCO in protecting and preserving heritage.

At the 41st session of the General Conference of UNESCO in Paris, Brnabic emphasized that four jewels of the Serbian medieval cultural heritage in Kosovo – Visoki Decani, Pec Patriarchate, Gracanica and Bogorodica Ljeviska, have been preserved thanks to the fact that they are inscribed on the endangered world heritage list. Hundreds of other sites and monuments are endangered.

The Serbian heritage in Kosovo and Metohija is of immeasurable importance, not only for the national identity of Serbia, but also as a part of the esteemed European and world heritage, she underlined.
