Swiss Ambassador meets Serbian Minister of Labour, Employment, Veteran and Social Affairs
On 19 January 2021, the Ambassador of Switzerland, Mr. Urs Schmid, paid a courtesy visit to the Minister of Labour, Employment, Veteran and Social Affairs, Mrs. Darija Kisić Tepavčević. Given that the current year will mark the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the Swiss cooperation program in Serbia, the meeting provided an excellent opportunity to appreciate the close bilateral cooperation that exists with the Ministry in several areas of its competence.
Both sides emphasized that they intend to continue working together on important topics such as youth employment, social inclusion and the protection of vulnerable migrants. Under the new bilateral cooperation program 2022 – 2025, which is currently being developed, special emphasis will be placed on innovative projects, including fostering digitalization.
This cooperation is contributing to the sustainable and inclusive social and economic development of Serbia and will further deepen the excellent bilateral relations between Serbia and Switzerland.
