Zoran Sekulic, founder and Director of News Agency FoNet, was awarded the Legion of Honor, France’s highest decoration, by the ambassador of France in Belgrade Christine Moro.

A longtime client and friend Hristov consulting, Svetlana Djurdjevic Lukic (53) director and one of the founders of the independent think tank the Center for Public Policy Research, a respected analyst and expert on US foreign policy, human security and security policy, tragically passed away at age 53.

She has led a number of projects, with a particular interest on the most important security problems for all  Serbian citizens, as well as various social groups in Serbia – young people, Roma, LGBT and women. She has published various works such as monographs and articles in various anthologies and magazines. As a tireless activist, Svetlana was engaged in various working groups in Serbia. Some of them are Government Working Group for drafting the National Action Plan for the implementation of Resolution 1325 of the UN Security Council from 2016 to 2020, the Council of the Center for Foreign Policy Forum for International Relations of the European Movement in Serbia, and others.

She regularly worked with the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the Geneva Center for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF). Before founding the Center for Public Policy Research Svetlana worked as a researcher and adviser in the Department for International Development London School of Economics (LSE) in London; Institute for Foreign Policy in Philadelphia, USA; Center for small arms control in South-East Europe (SEESAC) and the OSCE Mission in Belgrade. She was also involved in several projects of the Serbian Ministry of Science, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Defense, as a researcher and associate at the Institute for International Politics and Economics, and the Institute for Strategic Research and the Institute Vinca.

Svetlana’s departure is a great personal and professional loss not only for the Center and its associates, but also the general public in Serbia. Svetlana leaves behind a husband and two children, as well as many close friends. We remain deeply saddened by her sudden and tragic death.

Posted by Aleksandra Hristov on May 20th, 2015 under Events | No Comments »

My company Hristov Consulting has organized press trip for journalists from Serbia and I worked on public relations for the event “Mining Geology Forum Srebrenica 2015” in Bosnia an Hercegovina for my clients Mineco Ltd and Gross d.o.o.
There were media from both Bosnia and Serbia. We had 85 media coverages after the event.
The forum was opened by Petar Đokić, Minister of Industry, Energy and Mining of Republika Srpska. The organizer is the company Gross that manages the Sase mine and whose majority owner is my client the British company Mineco Limited.
At the opening of the forum, British ambassador Edward Ferguson said: “It is satisfying to see an example of how the British investor Mineco achieves success in the field through excellence in management”, said Ferguson, adding that Mineco is currently investing USD 4.5 million in increasing production at Sase alone.
In his view, Mineco’s involjvment in the mines of B&H positions the UK as the second largest investor in the country after Russia.
At the opening of the Forum Minister Đokić also commended Mineco’s commitment to investment in Republika Srpska’s mining industry and its overall development.
“We have vast unexploited mineral resources and great potential for the development of the mining industry in Republika Srpska. The Government will therefore continue to support such investments”, said Đokić.
Dominic Roberts, COO of Mineco Ltd., said that the company intends to continue investing in B&H and Serbia, since this region is rich in mineral resources and non-ferrous metals.
He added that all the company’s mines use the latest technology and that all investment is accompanied by investment in environmental protection, at the level of the highest European standards.
Besides being majority owner of the Gross mine Sase, Mineco is also working on the rehabilitation of the lead mine in Olovo in the Federation of B&H, while in Novo Goražde they are investing in prospecting for antimony deposits.
In Serbia, Mineco is the majority owner of the Veliki Majdan lead and zinc mine, the zinc mine near Gornji Milanovac and the Bosilegrad lead and zinc mine, which is currently undergoing infrastructure works.
