The Turkish company Birlesik Textile will launch textile production in Lazarevac by the end of the year, and employ 600 people in the first stage.
Belgrade Mayor Sinisa Mali met with the representatives of the Turkish company on April 25. The meeting was attended by the director of the Turkish textile company, Ali Sarki, the company’s representative Muradin Gunes, the president of the municipality of Lazarevac, Bojan Sindjelic, State Secretary in the Ministry of Public Administration and Local Self-Government Bojan Stevic and Uros Kandic, adviser to the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications.
Mali reminded that the Turkish company had bought the Beko Lazarevac Company, which had been bankrupt for quite some time. The plan, as he pointed out, was to employ 600 people this year at the initial stage, and then another 600, predominantly women, in the next one.
According to Mali, this is the second Belgrade factory to be opened soon, as the Mei Ta factory in Obrenovac, where 1,400 people will be employed, will also launch in a few months.
Gunes said that the world renowned textile brands would be produced in Lazarevac, and he thanked Minister Rasim Ljajic and the representatives of the City of Belgrade and the Municipality of Lazarevac for enabling the company to invest in Serbia.
