During the tour of the New York Stock Exchange, Brnabic and Cunningham discussed the business climate and business conditions.
The prime minister stressed that Serbia is open to business and cooperation with the world’s leading companies, and added that our country was given the recognition of the leading international financial institutions for the reforms implemented.
Also, she added, Serbia is today the leader in attracting foreign direct investment, according to the Financial Times.
The prime minister signed the Book of Impressions and presented Cunningham with a book about Nikola Tesla.
As the first woman prime minister of Serbia and the first woman president of the New York Stock Exchange, Brnabic and Cunningham discussed the common challenges they face in their careers.
