Pavel Livinskiy, Head of Rosseti and Chairman of the Business Council for Cooperation with Serbia, mentioned in his welcome speech that the pandemic had some impact on the interaction between the two countries, but it wasn't dramatic. For 9 months, the trade amounted to almost $1.5 billion.

The power industry is among the promising areas of cooperation. Rosseti are considering options for synergy in such areas as digital transformation, green energy and storage systems development, electromobility, smart grids, and power grid management in major cities.
"The Business Council is ready to help companies from both countries in the implementation of joint and mutually beneficial initiatives. I believe that the cooperation will continue to develop. Russian business community representatives are able and ready to share their experience and promising developments. It is important to bring the representatives of art, culture, science and education into our dialogue. This will make our cooperation more profound and trustworthy", commented Pavel Livinskiy.
