Award “Friend of Office for European Affairs, Friend of Vojvodina” established

The Conference on Integrated Governance of Clusters between Italy and our country has been at the Assembly of Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, organized by the Office for European Affairs.

”In cooperation with Italian partners, and with the financial backing of the Ministries of Economy of Serbia and Italy, we have worked on establishing relations between the clusters in the two countries. We have especially focused on building construction, industry, tourism, etc. The implemented program was another opportunity to establish contacts between companies and to attract new direct investments”, said Predrag Novikov, Director of Office for European Affairs.

During the conference, Novikov also announced the establishment of an annual award to be presented to individuals from abroad, who have made a significant contribution to the affirmation of our Province. The first person to receive the award was Alessandro Napoli, representative of the Italian region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, who was presented a T-shirt of the Football Club Vojvodina, and in that way symbolically “started playing” in the team of the Office for European Affairs, i.e. Vojvodina Team.
