The Western Balkan Six Chamber Investment Forum (WB CIF) plans to officially launch a regional online investment platform during its upcoming meeting in February, the Serbian Chamber of Commerce has said.
The online platform will be unveiled at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) Western Balkans Investment Forum in London and will provide investors with key macroeconomic indicators, information on applicable laws and regulations, financial and other investment incentives, as well as potential suppliers, the Serbian Chamber of Commerce said in a statement on Friday.
“In the six months since the establishment of the Permanent Secretariat of the Chamber Investment Forum, a team of the office in Trieste has been set up, which will work on joint projects implemented with the support of the European Union, and within the framework of the Berlin Process,” the president of the Serbian Chamber of Commerce, Marko Cadez, said in the statement.
This year’s London Investment Forum is dedicated to the countries of the Western Balkans, and will be held on February 26 under the auspices of the EBRD, the Serbian Chamber of Commerce said.
The WB CIF was established in August 2015 by the Chambers of Commerce of Serbia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Slovenia and Croatia with the support of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (WKO) and the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry (DIHK).
The key objectives of WB CIF are the removal of the obstacles to economic regional cooperation, sustainable development of the Western Balkans in the context of the EU integration and improvement of the business and investment climate in the region, according to data from the website of WB CIF.
