A cooperation agreement was signed between CCPIT and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia (CCIS) in Belgrade, Serbia on May 17. CCPIT Vice Chairman Chen Zhou and CCIS Vice Chairman Miroslav Miletic signed the agreement.
Chen Zhou said, Serbia is the first country in Central and Eastern Europe that established a comprehensive strategic partnership with China. Serbia has been an important trade and investment destination for Chinese enterprises. China and Serbia bear great cooperation potentials in agriculture, food, equipment manufacturing, infrastructure construction and green energy. The cooperation agreement signed with CCIS will be a new chapter for bilateral collaboration. Chen hoped both sides further exchanges to provide more trade and investment opportunities for Chinese and Serbian enterprises by favor of the agreement.

In the past two years, the exchange visits between Serbian and Chinese top leaders have marked a continuous deepening of the friendly relations. Miletic said Serbian economy is highly dependent on China. CCIS attaches its importance to the strategic partnership with CCPIT and hopes to foster cooperation with CCPIT in the promotion of agribusiness, technological transfer and the formulation of industry standards.
