The President of the Serbian Chamber of Commerce (SCC), Marko Cadez, stated that the Free Trade Agreement with the Eurasian Economic Union does not hinder Serbia’s entry into the European Union.

Presenting the results of the first phase of the “My First Salary” program, he said that the agreement is very similar to the agreements that Serbia already has with individual countries that are now members of the Eurasian Union.

“Will that agreement, like the previous agreement with the Russian Federation, be able to be in force when we become a member of the European Union – no, of course, because we will be a member of the European Union. How the European Union will define its relations with the Russian Federation then remains to be seen,” Cadez said.

He explained that the Russian market is especially important because a dozen delegations of Russian companies have visited Serbia in the last four months alone, and added that “numerous large contracts” have been signed, including contracts with the Tigar and Yumko factories.

He pointed out the example of the Sabac Dairy, which has 25% of the white cheese market in the whole of Russia, N1 reports.
