Matic pointed out that the signing of this memorandum represents a clear determination of the governments of Serbia and Greece to influence the reduction of roaming prices to the mutual benefit and satisfaction of citizens.
Thus, our traditionally good and friendly relations have been raised to an even higher level and the readiness of the two countries to encourage mutual cooperation and economic development has been confirmed, the Minister said.
She recalled that the government of Serbia and the relevant ministry signed the third important document with Greece in less than two months, after signing the Joint Statement with the Ministry of Tourism of that country on cooperation during and after the COVID-19 pandemic and the Agreement on Mutual Recognition of Digital Certificates.
Matic mentioned that these documents are of exceptional importance because they are expected to significantly facilitate the stay of our citizens in Greece, as well as of Greeks in Serbia.
By striving to overcome pandemic obstacles, by opening borders for Serbian tourists and now by its commitment to reducing roaming tariffs, Greece has once again shown a deep commitment to nurturing fraternal relations with the Serbian people, she concluded.
Pierrakakis, who spoke with Matic about best practices for developing 5G network, stressed that digital tools and telecommunications will make it easier to restart tourism.
Based on the Memorandum on Reduction of International Tariffs for Roaming of Electronic Communications Services, the competent ministries will encourage operators of public mobile electronic communications in Serbia and Greece to reach mutual agreements regarding the permanent reduction of international wholesale tariffs, which will reduce the retail price of calls, SMS messaging and data exchange in roaming.
