In celebration of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, the session of the Council for Persons with Disabilities of the City of Nis, attended by Nis City Mayor Darko Bulatovic was held today at Nis City Hall. On this occasion, Mayor Bulatovic thanked all the people with disabilities for providing tremendous contributions and advice to local self-government in order to solve common problems in the best possible way. “I am not saying everything goes smoothly, without problems, quite the contrary. But with enough understanding, dedication and with the desire to move forward, we overcome the obstacles we encounter”, the Mayor said. Today is the opportunity is to promote understanding of the problem of disability and to once again demonstrate how important tolerance, mutual respect and cooperation are, but also the availability of institutions in order to include people with disabilities more in the social and economic life of our city,” he added. “We are doing everything in our power to improve and help greater involvement in all aspects of life. Unfortunately, there are still many barriers that we face as a society. People with disabilities continue to face unequal opportunities in terms of education, employment, and many institutions remain physically inaccessible. The rate of employment of people with disabilities is extremely low, despite the implementation of the Law on Employment of Persons with Disabilities. These are just some of the problems, “said Mayor Bulatovic. ”Ever-present problems must not remain invisible so that you would not feel invisible in your community, and I believe that this happens often to you. My associates and I will try, together with you, to solve problems one by one, that equal opportunities that are guaranteed to you become truly equal, and above all, we will strive to respect your right to diversity”, concluded Mayor Bulatovic.
