Nis City Mayor Darko Bulatovic opened today the traditional October Meetings in social protection. This year the focus is on growing up in the world of modern technologies. “The fact that modern technology is progressing more and more every day is becoming our everyday life, it is impossible to expect that children can be isolated from computers or mobile phones”, the Mayor said. He added that the task of adults is to protect the rights of the child and to prevent any kind of child abuse. “As the local self-government we have to implement and support various social activities aimed at preventing and eradicating the bad phenomena brought by the world of modern technology. Timely social and institutional reaction, preventive and educational programs that include the activities of education, social protection, justice, civil sector and police, can deliver results,” said Mayor Bulatovic. “The local self-government must be actively involved in this issue and the City of Nis does its best to provide its contribution to the protection of the youngest population, through cross-sectoral activities, as well as participation in projects related to the protection of children. Our goal is for our children to grow up in a healthy and safe environment, and this is why we all need to give our maximum contribution”, said the Mayor Bulatovic.

Representatives of the Russian delegation from Rostov and the Kozak businessmen association met the Nis Deputy Mayor Prof. Dr. Milos Bandjur and his associates and discussed the potentials of Nis and the environment for the establishment of economic cooperation, especially in the field of agriculture. This is only the first in a series of meetings to be organized in order to connect Russian and Serbian agricultural producers in order to increase the export of domestic products to the Russian market, in accordance with the required standards. In our region, 60 000 households are engaged in agriculture. One third of the territory occupies agricultural land and most is under wheat, while only 12% is intended for fruit and vegetable production. Nis City Deputy Mayor Prof. Dr. Milos Bandjur said that the City of Nis was ready to support any form of cooperation with Russian businessmen. He added that the Russian delegation was informed about the potential of cooperation with our city, mostly in the field of agriculture, but also about the possibilities for cooperation in the processing of agricultural products and exports to Russia. The Deputy Mayor stressed that it was possible to improve cultural cooperation and emphasized the importance of spiritual connections between the two countries, but it was of paramount importance to extend these relations to the economy. One of the representatives of the Russian delegation, Mr. Vasilij Filipovic Hejlo, said that the goal of their arrival in Nis was to help the Kozaks in Serbia, as well as to establish the economic base and cooperation with businessmen in Serbia.
