Two Awards for the German-Serbian Chamber of Commerce
17. March 2017.
Two awards given by the magazine Diplomacy&Commerce were received, on behalf of the German-Serbian Chamber of Commerce, by its President, dr Ronald Seeliger, CEO of Hemofarm and Vice President of STADA Group for South East Europe.

German-Serbian Chamber of Commerce (AHK Serbia) received an award for the improvement of bilateral cooperation and economic environment in 2016 and Martin Knapp, Executive Member of the Management Board, was awarded for the project „Serbian Visions“ which gathers the most significant institutions of the civil society.

The jury was unanimous in its decision that the German-Serbian Chamber of Commerce was an institution that contributed the most to the improvement of bilateral cooperation between Serbia and Germany in 2016 and enabled tighter connections of the two countries in the field of economy, culture and humanitarian work.

„German-Serbian Chamber of Commerce was founded last year with the aim of improving bilateral relations and economic environment in Serbia. It is the only bilateral chamber in Serbia, originating from the joint agreement of the governments of the two countries and in line with the new Law stipulating this field. Both awards are a great incentive for over 300 companies, our members, to remain the best ambassadors of such a cooperation and implementation of investment projects in Serbia. Apart from the economic ties, AHK Serbia recognized the significance of the social responsible behaviour and active efforts of the civil sector in the development of the country and initiated the multicongress Serbian Visions“, said dr Ronald Seeliger, receiving the awards.

Dr Seeliger also emphasized that the award for the Chamber was the recognition of the operation of the former Delegation of German Economy to Serbia and Association DSW during the last 15 years by merger of which the Chamber was formed.

As of this year the magazine Diplomacy&Commerce has established the awards to companies, institutions and individuals for the contribution to economy, culture and education, corporate social responsibility and humanitarian work, modelled by the magazine The Economist, being their syndication in Serbia.
