During the South Korean Environment Industry Delegation’s visit to Serbia, a conference was held to discuss cooperation and projects in the field of environmental protection. The event was organized by the Chamber of Commerce of Green Serbia and the Korean Agency for Trade and Investment – KOTRA.

The conference was officially opened by Serbian Minister of Environmental Protection, Goran Trivan and Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Serbia, Dae Jong Yoo, who noted there is ample room enhancing cooperation between the two countries in the field of environmental protection.

According to Trivan, after it recently completed mapping of the current environmental situation in municipalities in Serbia, the ministry is now focused on finding partners and resolving specific problems through project development, while countries more technologically advanced than Serbia, such as South Korea, are seen as potential investors.

“Serbia has great scientific and professional potential, as well as a high-quality workforce, which represents a significant capacity for developing cooperation in this area,” Trivan said.

On behalf of the organizers, Saša Mihajlović, president of the Chamber of Commerce of Green Serbia,  greeted the audience and noted that his organization has been working intensively on the initiation of international cooperation in the field of ecology for six years now.

South Korea interested in investing in Serbia

South Korea exports around USD 7.5 billion worth of green technology annually and representatives of the Korean Ministry of Environment and the country’s Environmental Industry Association expressed interest in exchanging know-how with Serbia.

South Korea looks forward to cooperating with Serbia in the field of ecology, developing bilateral collaboration, and implementing green investment projects in the future, according to the ambassador.

At the gathering, South Korea’s Aquacell Co. and Korea Water Technology Co. presented their drinking water and wastewater treatment technologies, while DongLim Global Co. discussed its waste-to-energy portfolio.

Following the presentations, B2B meetings were held between representatives of local and regional environmental companies and theirSouth Korean peers.
