The Managing Board, headed by me, will remain committed to building trust and dialogue, which is needed for harmonized reform solutions in the best interest of our society - said Vladislav Cvetković, the newly elected President of the Board of NALED.

The Members saw strengthening competitiveness and support for entrepreneurs and small and medium enterprises (score 4.3), improving the tax system (4.2), modernizing municipal services and improving property issues and conditions for construction (4.1) as the priority

Violeta Jovanović, NALED Executive Director, thanked the members of the new Managing Board for their willingness to voluntarily engage in this responsible role, and try to surpass the result of the previous assembly, in whom mandate the organization carried out 300 activities, and realized more than 30 projects.
