Prime Minister Brnabić has underlined that the Technical School in Požega will be turned into a regional centre for training on CNC machines, “because it is the occupation we need most and the demand of which is so high, and it also allows for more investments in Serbia, as well as for citizens to work much better paid jobs”.
“So far, we have invested about EUR 620,000 in the Technical School just in the first phase. The first phase was completed today, and we will invest additional EUR 1.7 million in the second phase. All this started thanks to the cooperation of “Inmold” and the Technical School, and we as the Government are investing additionally, in order to encourage faster and better development”, said Prime Minister Brnabić.

It just shows what Serbia can do, how much it knows and how much it’s worth, and the Government of Serbia will be there to provide additional help so that development would be even faster”, emphasized the Prime Minister.
Assistant Minister of Education Gabrijela Grujić, in charge of dual education, assessed that knowledge in “Inmold” was transferred in an inspiring real work environment.
“I was truly fascinated by the new energy, strength and motivation of the young people. It is commendable that those who are in the third or fourth year help the younger ones who are in the first year and together with the instructors provide support to the key idea and essence of dual education – which is the integration of theory and practice. “It is these young people who will make the greatest contribution to the “Inmold “company not only by making it self-sustainable in the future, but also by making it innovative,” Mrs Grujić said.
