25 нов Signing the Memorandum of Understanding with the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia
The Association of Business Women in Serbia held a conference on the occasion of „ Signing the Memorandum of Understanding with the national Assembly of the Republic of Serbia“ in the frame of project „Women entrepreneurs contribute to development of economic policy in new political context“. The conference was held in the premises of Media Center in Belgrade.
The central event of the conference was the official signing of the Memorandum of Understanding with the national Assembly of the Republic of Serbia.
This is the first time in the history of Parliament that an association of women in entrepreneurship formalizes its cooperation with the highest legislative institution in the country. Namely, the cooperation will be performed by Women’s parliamentary network and the Committee on the Economy, Regional Development, Trade, Tourism and Energy at the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia. Memorandum of Understanding is an important basis for the future cooperation with other associations of business women, not only with the Association of Business Women in Serbia.
On behalf of the ABW Serbia, the document was signed by Sanja Popovic Pantic, president of the ABW, and on behalf of the Parliament: Aleksandra Tomic, president of the Committee on the Economy, Regional Development, Trade, Tourism and Energy at the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia and Marija Obradovic, president of the Defense and Internal Affairs Committee and first coordinator of Women’s parliamentary network.
Results on the project „Women entrepreneurs contribute“ were presented during the conference. A film picturing all the activities on the project was shown and at the same time was promoted the special publication about the project.
Project was funded by the Delegation of the EU to the Republic of Serbia and Government’s Office for cooperation with Civil society. The Parliament has institutionally supported this project.
