At a joint news conference with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, Ross said he welcomed the signing of the memorandum of understanding in infrastructure on Sept. 6, adding that it would deepen the ties between the two nations.
The U.S. senior official said Serbia had an important strategic location in global trade, since it was at the crossroads between Asia and Europe.
Considering the established connections and the possibilities for mutual economic growth, we are looking forward to further cooperation with the Serbian government, Ross said.
American companies are leaders in the fields of innovations, creativity, digital technology and transparency in contracting and financing, Ross said, adding that they offered the best value because they provided the most advanced technologies.
Ross said that huge technical talent existed in Serbia, recalling that the most innovative electric vehicle producer in the world was named after scientist Nikola Tesla.
