The Vice-President of the Government of the Republic of Serbia and the Minister of Finance Sinisa Mali met with the Ambassador of Finland to Serbia, Kim Lahdevirt, with whom he discussed the cooperation between the two countries, as well as the implementation of the green agenda.
Mali and Lahdevirt discussed Serbia’s membership in the Coalition of Finance Ministers regarding climate change, and the Deputy Prime Minister pointed out that our country will join the aforementioned coalition, and that he hopes other countries in the region will do the same.
The Minister thanked for the invitation to join and pointed out that this is an extremely important topic, to which the Government has devoted itself in the last few years. He added that Serbia issued the first green bond in 2021, as the first country in the region and the only country outside the European Union that managed to do so.
In addition, he pointed out that our country has solved the decades-long problem of the landfill in Vinča, and that as part of the “Clean Serbia” project, factories for the treatment of waste water and sewage networks are being built throughout the country.
