Deputy Foreign Minister Spyros Kouvelis, speaking on Thursday evening at a Greek-Serb business forum in Belgrade, during his two-day visit to the Serb capital, stressed the need for the widening of economic cooperation between Greece and Serbia.

The deputy Foreign minister said that the Greek businessmen are interested in investing in Serbia in the sectors of energy, and in renewable sources in particular, infrastructures, production and tourism.

"We desire to strengthen economic cooperation, we are encouraging the investments of Greek businessmen in Serbia, but the investments must also move in the opposite direction, so that both sides will equally benefit," Kouvelis said.
