The Minister thanked Ambassador Feeney for her successful efforts in bringing the two countries closer through collaborations in the field of culture. Belgrade City Manager Vesić also acknowledged Ambassador Feeney’s support and promotion of the Serbian culture and recognized the high potential for the development of tourism that the project can bring. Ambassador Feeney thanked the Minister and City Manager for their cooperation with this and numerous other projects that are part of the successful bilateral cooperation between Australia and Serbia. Professor Richard Miles, the Australian Co-Director of the Project, expressed his pleasure to be able to work in a very hospitable country that has an incredible archaeological heritage and leading experts from whom a lot can be learned. The Serbian Co-Director, Dr Stefan Pop-Lazić said this is a long-term project that will shed new light on Sirmium. And lastly, Jelena Šarović, the youngest member of the team, born in Niš, Serbia, stated she is extremely pleased that her first major archaeological project, following the completion of her bachelor studies in Australia, is bringing her back to her country of birth.
