Belgrade inks development agreements with China

Agreements on the construction of a new industrial park in Belgrade and the completion of the project of constructing a sewer system in the capital of Serbia, as well as a water treatment facility in Veliko Selo were signed on Sunday.

Companies from China are very interested in investing in Serbia and Belgrade, which is great news, said the Mayor of Belgrade Sinisa Mali.

– We signed an agreement on the construction of a new industrial park in Belgrade, on the left side of the Danube, next to the Pupin Bridge, with the China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC). We are talking about a huge chunk of land which we will use for dozens of new companies from China and all over the world. This will be the biggest industrial park in this part of Europe – Mali said to the press in Beijing.

Furthermore, the mayor notes, an agreement was reached with Poly Group. A contract on the completion of the sewer system in Belgrade and the water treatment factory in Veliko Selo, will be signed in the next 30 days, which, as Mali notes, is a project that has been in the making for almost 30 years.

He went on to say that he met with the executives from the Higer Company that had supplied Belgrade with five electric buses. Mali added that Belgrade wanted to buy dozens of new electric buses from the company, so that the public transport would be carried out solely by electric buses, which, as he underlines, is very important in terms of ecology.

– On the other hand, we are trying to combine this with their entry to Ikarbus, so that our factory in Zemun would produce these electrical buses that would be exported to Europe – said Mali.

Two Chinese companies are also shortlisted for the concessionaire deal for the Belgrade Airport, Mali reminds and says that there there are ongoing negotiations with both of them, and that their bids are expected on May 30.
