Visit of Commissioner Johannes Hahn to Serbia on 7 May 2015

Commissioner Johannes Hahn will visit Serbia on 7 May 2015.

The visit will be the second one Commissioner Hahn pays to Serbia in his capacity of Commissioner for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations. The aim of Commissioner Hahn’s visit is to support Serbia’s accession process and discuss the possibility of opening of the first chapters.

In Belgrade, he will meet President Tomislav Nikolić and Prime Minister Aleksandar Vučić.

He will discuss negotiations and focus on rule of law chapters 23 and 24 with Minister for EU Integration Jadranka Joksimović, Minister of Justice Nikola Selaković and Minister of the Interior Nebojša Stefanović.

He will also have meetings with the Ombudsman Saša Janković and civil society representatives on the same topics. During his visit Commissioner Hahn will also give a keynote speech at the Foreign Investors Council conference and will discuss the economic and structural reforms and the connectivity agenda with Ministers of Finance Duṧan Vujović and of Economy Zeljko Sertić at the meeting of the National Investment Committee. He will also meet opposition leaders Bojan Pajtić and Boris Tadić. Commissioner Hahn will also testify to EU solidarity by visiting Obrenovac, where people are recovering from last year’s floods with EU financial assistance.

SAV Comment –  “He will discuss negotiations and focus on rule of law”. 

Lets hope that he focuses on the issue that Serbia has NOT complied with its own rule of law regulations regarding animal welfare for well over 10 years now !
