“Around 100 French companies currently employ close to 11,000 people in Serbia, but I invited them to come in even greater numbers and invest,” Brnabic added.

In line with the contract signed with the Belgrade authorities, the French company Egis has drafted the Main Project and the Pre-Feasibility Study for Subway lines 1 and 2. Their Final Report has been approved by the commission in charge of this project stage.
