Today HBIS GROUP Serbia marked the beginning of a new international training program, where employees will acquire and improve knowledge from Management and Practice in Modernized Logistics.

The training is organized under the patronage of the Ministry of Trade of the People's Republic of China, organized by the Academy for International Business Officials of this Ministry (AIBO) and co-organized by HBIS Group.

The successful start of the new training cycle on behalf of the Chinese International Center for Economic and Technological Exchange was congratulated first by Guo Kai, Deputy to Director General of this Chinese institution, who pointed out that during two years, there were 2 training courses in China and 6 courses of technological training abroad. In total, more than 2000 people participated.
Guo said that the goal of these training courses is to strengthen international cooperation, with the support of International Exchange Center.

Milun Trivunac, State Secretary at the Ministry of Economy, said that the Republic of Serbia could be an economic bridge between China and the EU. Regarding the construction of the Industrial Park to be built in Smederevo he said:

"We consider this a strategic move for the development of Smederevo, the Republic of Serbia and the region. Today, two important documents were signed in China in connection to the construction of the Industrial Park. One is the Memorandum of Understanding between the Government of the Republic of Serbia and the Government of Hebei Province, the other is the understanding between the Ministry of Economy and HBIS. I am convinced that HBIS will transform the Smederevo steel mill into a modern complex, with advanced technology, equipment and environmental standards, and the growth of the company can also be contributed to the training that is starting today. "
