Minister of Religion and the Diaspora Srdjan Sreckovic  attended a conference of Tesla Bank in Zagreb, the goal of which is to encourage the return of Serbs to Croatia.

The Ministry of Religion and the Diaspora says in a statement that the goal of this bank is to encourage the revival and development of economy in underdeveloped parts of Croatia that suffered the most during the war, and which were mostly inhabited by Serbs. This is to be done through loans for economic activities and regional distribution of funds from domestic and foreign sources.

Sreckovic stressed that developing good neighbourly relations in all aspects is one of Serbia’s state policy priorities, voicing his belief that Tesla Bank can strengthen and revive the overall economic relations between Serbia and Croatia and open the path to firmer inter-regional economic cooperation.

By creating a reliable development bank which endorses the return of Serbs, as well as the development of economy in all war-ravaged parts of Croatia where the majority of the population were Serbs, we are working together for our future, the Minister said.

The economic relations between Serbia and Croatia are developing too slowly, which is disadvantageous to both states, therefore this process must be stepped up, the Minister observed.

Once we link companies from both countries and enhance their cooperation, we will see that we have managed to catch up with Europe and modernize the Serbian and the Croatian society. Then, Tesla Bank will play the role of a catalyst for numerous economic activities, Sreckovic stated.

The two countries will become an integral part of Europe only when they become economically stronger, and in order to do so, they must cooperate in this respect.

Sreckovic, who attended a conference of Tesla Bank, voiced his belief – on behalf of the bank’s shareholders, namely the Serbian government and the Serbian Development Fund – that the bank will be socially responsible, profitable, technologically modern and commercial and development bank with a broad network of offices, striving to help the population, entrepreneurs and local communities.

The bank was formed at the initiative of the Serbian National Council in Croatia, with the support of the Serbian government and the government of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, the statement adds.
