Belgrade and Ljubljana exchanges join SEE Link

The Belgrade and Ljubljana Stock Exchanges on Monday signed an agreement on their intention to join the EBRD-supported SEE Link, a regional platform for trading securities supported by the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in London and founded jointly by the Bulgarian, Croatian and Macedonian stock exchanges, THE EBRD has reported. 

The agreement was signed at the Western Balkans Investment Summit in London organised by the EBRD and was attended by the prime ministers of Croatia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia.

EBRD President Sir Suma Chakrabarti launched the SEE Link in the presence of the prime ministers. The platform will become fully operational at the end of March and Chakrabarti said that this was an excellent example of the benefits regional integration brings.

“The SEE Link project is a great example of the benefits of regional integration. The EBRD is committed to this process and this is why we have supported SEE Link from the outset, with know-how and, thanks to our donors, technical assistance. The rapid expansion of SEE Link is testimony to its success. After Belgrade and Ljubljana we look forward to welcoming more new participants in the future,” Chakrabarti underscored. “We are very pleased that Belgrade and Ljubljana Stock Exchanges will be joining the project," he added.

The president of the the Zagreb Stock Exchange (ZSE) Management Board, Ivana Gazic, said that they were very pleased that Belgrade and Ljubljana had joined the SEE link. "That will certainly contribute to the attractiveness of this platform, the first in Europe that assists in connecting the market in an innovative way," said Gazic.
