Honorary Consul Nimrod Rinot together with H.E. Ambassador of Israel in Serbia Yossi Levi and the Mayor of Novi Sad Mr. Miloš Vučević

November 7th, opening of the second part of “BIG” shopping centre, with its first part opened exactly a year ago, now covers 40,000 square metres.

The opening ceremony was attended by the Minister of Regional Development and Local Government Mr. Igor Mirović, Novi Sad Mayor Mr. Miloš Vučević, Israeli Ambassador to Serbia H.E. Yossef Levy and the Honorary Consul Mr Nimrod Rinot.

"The most important thing is that the mall will employ a few hundred young people from Novi Sad, which shows that we continue to battle the issue of unemployment", said Mr. Mirović.

The Israeli ambassador expressed his pleasure to be able to attend the opening ceremony of the largest office building not only in Novi Sad, but also in Vojvodina, and perhaps in the whole of Serbia. "This is a good example of excellent cooperation between Israel and Serbia, and the investment of 50 million euros is hopefully just the first of many more to come", said ambassador Levy.
