On the occasion, Rabens, currently in Serbia to take part in the International Summit of 100 Young Leaders of South Eastern Europe, said he was pleased to be invited to the National Assembly and be given the opportunity to share his country’s experience in the development of entrepreneurship and motivating young people to engage in it, and invited Deputy Speaker Marinkovic to take part in next year’s Entrepreneurship Summit in the US, with a view to opening new opportunities and initiatives which could be applied in Serbia.

Speaking of funding of young people’s projects, the officials also discussed the potential connection between the private and state sector, and agreed that the state should set up a guarantee fund to finance the best projects and encourage big private companies to finance the best business plans, with the aim of employing young people.
