Dragana Cvetković, Export Import Department Manager, Delhaize Serbia

NOMINEE FOR TRADE FACILITATION COMMITTEE VICE CHAIR POSITION


STATEMENT OF INTENT

It is my great honor to be part of Trade Facilitation Committee from its beginning. I am leading the Subgroup in charge for import procedures for Agriculture, Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures and also I am involved in work of Expert Working Group of National Coordination Body for Trade Facilitation. Initiatives which are result of our engagement were accepted as an action plan from side of Ministry of Agriculture.

As a manager of the Import and Export department in the retail industry I am in charge of controlling, coordinating and improving all import-export procedures for a wide range of goods of various categories. All processes must be aligned with the legal requirements of the Republic of Serbia, foreign trade regulations and all related laws, and company procedures with goal to have goods available on time in our stores and to reduce the costs. Every day we face the challenges of foreign trade involving the relevant institutions of our country and all other participants in complete chain of foreign trading.  All that challenges are much easier to handle since we are part of the Trade Facilitation Committee.

With my professional experience and knowledge on foreign trade policies, I believe that I could contribute to the key goals of this Committee in the future as well on the position of Trade Facilitation Committee Vice Chair.
