Ji expressed hope that the two sides would further strengthen cooperation in the fields of infrastructure construction, economy, trade and investment, agricultural science and technology, culture and education, and transform the friendship between China and Serbia into pragmatic cooperation so as to better benefit the people of the two countries and provinces.
During the event, the two sides signed a letter of intent on establishing and developing friendly cooperative relations between Shandong province and the Vojvodina autonomous province of Serbia, and an agreement to establish sister city relations between Shandong's Yantai city and Serbia's Zrenjanin city.
Serbia is one of the key countries under the China-CEEC cooperation mechanism and the Belt and Road Initiative. Vojvodina is an important agricultural province in Serbia which has in recent years cooperated closely with Shandong. Enterprises such as Shandong Hi-speed Group and Linglong Tire have been involved in major projects in Vojvodina.
