Serbian PM Aleksandar Vucic met on Monday with European Investment Bank (EIB) Vice-President Dario Scannapieco, who praised the very good results of the Serbian government’s economic policy, expressing readiness on behalf of the EIB to fully support the further reform process in Serbia.

The meeting primarily focused on implementing joint projects of the EIB and the Serbian government, including reconstruction and construction of four clinical hospitals – in Belgrade, Nis, Novi Sad and Kragujevac, a government statement said.

They also discussed projects in the fields of infrastructure, social housing and migration, as well as projects aimed at strengthening the infrastructure needed for development of research and innovation in the IT sector.

Furthermore, the Serbian Minister of Finance Dusan Vujovic and EIB VP Dario Scannapieco signed a financial contract on the upgrading of judiciary buildings after Scannapieco’s meeting with Serbian PM Aleksandar Vucic, the EIB said in a statement.  It is a 26 mln EUR second tranche of a loan totaling 41 mln EUR to be spent on upgrading judiciary buildings.
