The reception was organized at Nis City Hall for the students from Banja Luka who were visiting the Faculty of Philosophy in Nis. They were welcomed by Nis City Deputy Mayor Milos Bandjur who said that Nis and Banja Luka were two important regional centers, two basic points, some kind of western and southern and eastern defense lines. Talking about the current moment, he pointed out the current investments in the city such as building of factories, but also the building of the science and technology park. “It is good when two universities, two faculties of philosophy are developing cooperation. It is good that people who are living at two ends of the Serbian national space visit each other, socialize, exchange experiences. Both Nis and Banja Luka are important cities in every aspect, geostrategic, political. The Governments of the Republic of Serbia and the Republic Srpska pay great attention to the development of these two important centers”, as Deputy Mayor Bandjur said on this occasion. Srdja Preradovic from the Faculty of Philosophy from Banja Luka thanked for the warm welcome on behalf of his fifty colleagues visiting Nis. “Some of us are for the third time in Nis and I am sure that my colleagues who are visiting Nis for the first time will feel as welcomed as I always felt each time I visited Nis. I hope that the cooperation between our two faculties will continue in the future”.
