The first IBM development center was opened in Novi Sad today, and Prime Minister Ana Brnabić pointed out that this is a big day for Serbia, because the development center of the largest global company, which is the forerunner of the entire IT industry, is opening.
This is also the first center where technologies for IBM’s needs will be developed, the Prime Minister also opened the first office of the American company in Novi Sad.
“When IBM comes to you, it’s a big signal and says that we are an important destination on the world business map. Until now, in Belgrade, they only sold their solutions, but the technology for their needs was never developed in Serbia,” said Brnabić.
She reminded that two weeks ago the American ambassador and President Aleksandar Vučić opened the representative office of one of the largest companies for electric vehicles “Rivian”, and that now the development center of IBM is opening.

I am grateful to IBM for believing in us and I am convinced that they we will not disappoint,” the Prime Minister stressed.
The general manager of IBM for Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Albania, Nikola Polić, says that software will be developed here.
“This is a big deal for the local IBM because we are finally opening another office in Serbia, which will deal with very specific technology development. It is important for Serbia, because it shows that it is a great place for large technology companies to come. Thanks to this development center, we will be able to let’s provide better services and support to users in the wider region,” said Polić.
The mayor of Novi Sad, Milan Đurić, says that Novi Sad is recognized as the center of the IT industry.
