Mazharul Islam, chief executive of Anyaprokash, and writer Imdad Haque also delivered remarks.
Addressing the event, Foreign Minister Momen said a lot of development is happening in Serbia and the country requires more workforces.
Serbia is taking big development projects on the bank of the Danube River, creating lots of jobs for electricians and construction workers, he said.
Momen said the country also wants to hire workers and people in Bangladesh need to go to India for a Serbian visa and that is a big hassle.
Serbia, however, sent a consular team from Delhi to Dhaka and they issued about 3,500 visas for Bangladeshi, he said, adding that there are many job opportunities out there.
Foreign Minister Momen said there is a huge demand for Bangladeshi products in Serbia.
Writer Imdad Haque, who began his career in journalism, is currently the assistant private secretary to the Foreign Minister.
