In his career, Srecković held the position of the Deputy Director-General of JAT Airways from 2007 through 2008, and he also served as the Deputy Minister of Trade, Tourism and Services in the Government of the Republic of Serbia from 2004 through 2007.[1] During this time, he was the head of the working group for drafting and adopting the Law on Trade, Law on Prices, Law on Consumer Protection, Law Public Advertising, and Law on Competition Protection.[citation needed]
