“2020 is a year spent together by politics and the coronavirus. The already weak economy was simply forced to look for opportunities and ways to survive. In addition to tourism, all branches of the economy are affected and it is necessary to apply a set of support measures as soon as possible, especially to small and medium enterprises, but also measures that will go in order to recover and develop the economy”, said Budimir Raičković.
He also pointed out that everyone must influence the recovery of social and economic development.
After the introductory part of Budimir Raičković, Vladan Tabaš, President of the Committee for Digital Transformation, took the floor.

We have continuously worked on attractive topics on the promotion of attractive IT topics, not only among IT staff but also beyond”, said Vladan Tabaš.
