Participation at the Belt and Road International Skills Competition is yet another showcase of Serbia's friendly relations with China, said minister of labor, employment, veteran and social affairs Zoran Djordjevic here on Monday, and wished luck to the team of 19 professionals who are heading to Chongqing, China.

The team that will compare their skills with colleagues from China and other countries along the Belt and Road was presented at the Belgrade's Kombank Dvorana Hall in front of journalists and sponsors.

According to a press release after the conference, Serbian participants will compete in 9 skills: Electrical Installations, Plumbing and Heating, Cooking, Joinery, Restaurant Service, Hairdressing, Beauty Therapy, Health and Social Care and Floristry.

Djordjevic expressed hope that some of the participants will come back with medals, and thanked sponsors "for enabling our young people to participate in such an important competition".

"We have professional and capable people in which we put our full thrust. Our participation at this competition is yet another proof of the friendly relations between Serbia and China," he said.

The competition will be held in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality from May 26 to 31, where participants from more than 40 countries and regions will display their skills, exchange and compete.
