Mr Vučić, who is currently pursuing a range of reforms aimed at bringing Serbia closer to the EU and promoting jobs and growth, stressed that these measures were important for ensuring security and stability in the region.

"Serbia is engaged in a modernisation programme that is important for its future development. Both Sweden and Serbia are very keen to expand trade between our countries," said Mr Löfven.

The Prime Minister also highlighted the fact that Serbia is one of the countries that has taken responsibility in the refugee crisis, and stressed the need for efficient, sustainable arrangements for the reception of refugees.

During his visit to Belgrade on 15–16 August, Mr Löfven also met a number of Swedish companies operating in Serbia. Representatives of AstraZeneca, Ericsson, Ikea and Securitas discussed opportunities for Swedish investments in the region and in Serbia. The visit concluded with a meeting with President Tomislav Nikolić.
