    (ANSAmed) - BELGRADE, MARCH 14 - Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano stressed the strong Italian economic presence in Serbia, noting there is still room to boost bilateral cooperation in the country.

    ''Last night I met with Italian entrepreneurs and had confirmation of how this country is a great attraction for investments. A lot was made but a lot still can be done to boost our presence'', Alfano told reporters this morning.

    The minister added that during the meeting yesterday with Italian Ambassador Giuseppe Manzo, he presented to Italian entrepreneurs a new publication of the embassy that focuses on EU funding for businesses that want to invest in Serbia. ''It is another tool that the diplomatic economic system puts at the service of entrepreneurs'', observed Alfano, noting that ''business continuity is also an excellent headway for continuity in political and institutional relations''.

    ''We think - he added - that the place of this country is in Europe and all that is done in this direction eases conflicts and tensions''.

    According to Alfano, the European Union ''needs the enthusiasm and new life of countries that are not tired of the European faith and want to enter the EU''. (ANSAmed).
