June 23, 2014

BELGRADE – Ambassador Michael D. Kirby, Deputy Prime Minister Kori Udovički and President of the Standing Conference of Towns and Municipalities (SCTM) Zoran Perišić presented certificates to 61 officials from 22 municipalities throughout Serbia today.  These local officials successfully finished the e-learning program whose goal was to gain the knowledge and skills needed to better manage economic development in their communities, attract new local and foreign investments, and create jobs.

Speaking at the award ceremony, Ambassador Kirby said, “Increased investments and new jobs are only achieved when municipalities partner with business.  Businesses create jobs, while the role of local government is to create the conditions for businesses to do this more easily – by streamlining administrative processes and making them as transparent as possible.”  He added, “We look forward to continuing our work with the SCTM and local economic development teams to improve the competitiveness of their municipalities and regions and to speed the path of successful EU integration.”
