Serbian Maritime Cluster formed

The  initiative  to  strengthen  the  cooperation  of  the  leading  companies  of  water management  in Serbia  and  to  create  joint  actions,  has  led  to  the  formation  of  the  first cluster  regarding  this  important  part  of  the  economy.  VAHALI  was  one  of  the  main initiators of this Cluster.
With their signature, company representatives of the Initial Board gave their approval to form  a  Serbian  Maritime  Cluster  (SMC).  The  ceremony  was  held  at  The  Netherlands Embassy  in  Belgrade  in  the  presence  of  H.E.  Ambassador  Laurent  L.  Stokvis  and representatives of Serbian ministry of economics.

Initial Meeting of Serbian Maritime Cluster

VAHALI Shipyard in Zasavica hosted our colleagues from various Serbian companies that are in one way or another related to ships and water. The occasion was to very first meeting of the Serbian Maritime Cluster. The Cluster will contribute to the development of this economic branch in Serbia. Our colleagues had also a chance to see for themselves what we have built on our new location and what the plans are for 2014.
