Today, the Minister of Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications of Serbia, Tatjana Matić, attended the celebration of the centenary of the establishment of the commodity exchange in Novi Sad, which was the first in the region, the ministry announced.

At the Matica Srpska Gallery in Novi Sad, where the commodity and stock exchange business began in 1921, she said that the opening of the stock exchange was a sign of economic recovery after the First World War, when grain trade increased.

“The existence of a regulated commodity exchange market is an indicator of security and competitiveness of a certain economy, and in addition to its traditional role, today it takes over additional functions that contribute to raising the standardization of agricultural goods and the level of transparency and information of market participants,” Matic said.
