The Petroleum Industry of Serbia (NIS) is one of the largest regional energy companies, and this year, it continued to support “Balkan Trafik!” Festival in Brussels, an artistic event that has been successfully organized since 2007 under the auspices of the European Commission, and which makes a considerable contribution to promoting the culture of Southeast European countries in the EU.

At the festival, which gathers almost 8,000 visitors every year, some prominent artists such as Emir Kusturica, Goran Bregović, Biljana Krstić, Amira Medunjanin and other have performed so far.

This was the 12th festival of its kind, held from April 19-22 in the BOZAR Center for Fine Arts, during which the Balkan region was presented for the first time not only through its traditional music, which already has become familiar to the Brussels audience, but also through a new segment of the festival called Urban Chapter. Within this part of the event, in which more than 20 Balkan and Belgian artists took part, there were also numerous film screenings, workshops and discussions, held with the aim of assisting the exchange of ideas and enhancing understanding between young people from both the Balkans and the EU. The privilege of opening this year’s festival was enjoyed by the Turkish music star Candan Ercetin, who performed her traditional opus, while the second day of the festival was marked by the Bosnia-Herzegovina band Dubioza Kolektiv.

On the third day of the festival, the NIS Representation Office in Brussels, with support extended by the office of the Serbian Chamber of Commerce in Brussels, organized the traditional cocktail party, attended by prominent representatives of European institutions, diplomatic corps and business associations, as well as friends of the company and festival participants.

As a socially responsible company that, in addition to Serbia, develops its regional business activities in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary, NIS shares the Balkan Trafik! festival’s basic values – tolerance and respect for diversity, support for the young, and the promotion of cooperation, multiculturalism, true values and art. In addition, supporting this event, for the sixth consecutive year, has been one of the ways in which NIS continues to fulfil its mission: to provide people in the Balkan region with energy for moving towards a better life through the responsible use of natural resources and modern technology.
