Mr. Miloš Bugarin, president of the Serbian Chamber of Commerce, commented that "until now, Serbia has been the only country in the region that did not have an institutionalized partnership in the field of entrepreneurial learning, and this [partnership] is crucial to development of entrepreneurial learning, which is in turn crucial for fostering the competitiveness of Serbian economy and entrepreneurial spirit."
