As a member of the Republic of Srpska delegation at the forum titled 'The Republic of Srpska economy day', which was being held in Stuttgart, the Minister Đokić pointed out that the Republic of Srpska needed the investments and that the Government was willing to support their development.

He emphasized that the delegation of the Republic of Srpska had an opportunity to talk with German businessmen and the representatives of the Baden-Wurttemberg institutions about more concrete models of cooperation with the Republic of Srpska.
'I want to emphasize that German businessmen have already been interested in a more concrete cooperation. I am particularly pleased with the interest of our people who have been successfully developing their business in Germany for many years and who want to transfer some of their business to the Republic of Srpska,' said the Minister Đokić.
He added that he had recently spoken with the representatives of the Falstaff Company about some interesting investment ideas and that German partner Paul Bernhard was already successfully realizing his business plans within a new joint company 'MOFAS' in Istočno Sarajevo.
The Minister Đokić said that German company Bader in Šamac was successfully producing the metal constructions and that German capital was present in the 'Šumaplast' company in Bijeljina, which deals with the production of aluminium and PVC joinery.
'I am convinced that the representative delegation of businessmen of the Republic of Srpska, which is also here, will propose concrete suggestions for the cooperation in direct contacts,' said Đokić.
The Minister Đokić emphasized that German businessmen were very interested in energy, particularly in the field of energy production from renewable sources.
According to him, the Republic of Srpska had fully regulated this field through the enactment of the necessary legislation and establishing of incentive system, which has been successfully functioning since 2012.
