"Eastern and Central Europe are important markets for executing DuPont's strategy of 'going where the growth is,'" said Ian Hudson president DuPont Europe, Middle East and Africa. "While this marks our first office in Serbia, DuPont has had a sales and marketing presence in the country since 1987. Central Europe is a critical growth area for us as we expand our market reach."

Key DuPont markets for the region include agriculture, food processing, construction, automotive and refining and petrochemicals. Construction is among the three fastest growing sectors of Serbian industry, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit Report, published in June 2007. DuPont's business in Serbia is led by its strong agriculture presence in crop protection products, soybean products and seeds. The Belgrade site will create a base for newly developed distribution channels and offer accessibility to customers in the rapidly growing markets of Serbia and Montenegro.
