A new LPG terminal opened in Greece – crucial for the Balkans

On Tuesday, Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić said that the construction of an LNG terminal in Alexandroupolis, Greece, was a very significant event for the entire Balkan region.

He was speaking at a ceremony that marked the start of works to build the terminal.

Vučić added that he had been one of the few people who had been sceptical about the project but that he was very pleased to see that everything was now ready for the works to begin.

“We are profoundly grateful and we will be ready to take relatively big quantities of gas in the future,” Vučić said, adding that Serbia needed to build gas infrastructure to connect with Bulgaria in order to receive large quantities of gas.

He also said he was grateful to the EU for bankrolling the bulk of a project to build the Serbian stretch of a gas interconnector with Bulgaria.

The opening ceremony was also attended by the President of the Council Charles Michel, the Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, the Prime Minister of Bulgaria Kiril Petkov, and the Prime Minister of North Macedonia Dimitar Kovačevski.
