Representatives of twelve Chinese companies visit Krusevac

Representatives of 12 Chinese companies, operating in Serbia and the region, with the Chinese Ambassador to Serbia, Lee Manchang at their helm, met with the local authorities in the town of Krusevac and several local companies to discuss a potential cooperation in the segments of infrastructure, thermal energy, green energy, arms production and tourism.

“I brought with me twelve companies that operate in various business segments. We had great meetings, and our companies have expressed interest and a wish to initiate the cooperation with the Krusevac authorities”, the Chinese Ambassador said.

Following the establishment of the first official contact, the Ambassador expects further exchange of information to take place and for the partners from Krusevac to present the projects they believe might be implemented in cooperation with the Chinese companies.

“Around 20 big Chinese state companies currently operate in Serbia, and the number of privately owned ones is even bigger. Around USD 3 billion has been invested in Serbia. Last year, Hesteel invested USD 130 million in equipment alone in Smederevo, and the company will invest another USD 120 million in 2017. We expect this to be a year of large investments”, Manchang said.

The Chinese companies that visited Krusevac on 15th March operate all over the world, producing equipment for thermal power plants, building infrastructure, roads, bridges, industrial zones, railway infrastructure, and working in the field of green energy. The Chinese delegation has also visited the facilities of the Rubin factory, Fabrika Maziva, Tehnogradnja, as well as the Ribarska Spa.
