Conference “Promoting Investment in Energy Infrastructure in Serbia”
It is a great pleasure to announce the organization of the AEEC Autumn Conference that will take place on Monday, November 18, 2013 at Metropol Palace Hotel in Belgrade.
Associated European Energy Consultants (AEEC) is an international association of consultants and experts in the field of energy law. Originally, members of the association had been restricted to only EU energy law specialists. However, in recent years law firms from other, non-EU, countries including Prica & Partners as a representative of Serbia have become members of AEEC. As Serbia has been moving decisively toward integration into the EU legal framework, the AEEC presidency has decided to hold its annual autumn conference in Belgrade and devote it to Serbia.
In addition to members of the association, the Conference will be attended by senior officials of the Republic of Serbia, representatives of the competition authorities and international financial institutions, as well as the eminent representatives of the Energy Community.
The conference will start with the presentation of the key note speaker Dr Dirk Buschle, Deputy Director of the Energy Community Secretariat who will present the Energy Community’s point of view on the legal and business environment in Serbia as well as on possible opportunities and challenges for investors arising from it.
The energy related legal framework in Serbia will be presented by a representative of a Ministry for Energy, Development and Environmental Protection. A representative of the Serbian Competition Commission will specify more on the application of competition rules in energy sector in Serbia, and our associate Jelena Zivanovic will present the topic of public procurement and state aid.
Representatives of Enel Trade S.p.A. and Serbian Network of Energy Managers, as important energy market players, will also have a chance to present their views.
