Serbia, China and Hungary discuss high-speed rail line

China, Hungary and Serbia on Friday held a fifth trilateral meeting on a project to modernise and reconstruct the rail line from Belgrade to Budapest.

The meeting, which resulted in further progress in project implementation, was presided over by Serbian Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Zorana Mihajlovic, with the Chinese and Hungarian delegations headed by Wang Xiaotao, deputy director of the National Development and Reform Commission, and Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto, respectively, an official statement said.

The three countries’ working groups worked towards agreeing on technical and technology-related matters associated with high-speed rail lines as the rail line will be designed to allow speeds up to 200 km/h.

The project design for the section from Belgrade to Stara Pazova is expected to be completed by end-September.

A small favour

Since 2013, Serbian Monitor has been offering to its readers carefully selected news about the Republic of Serbia, as a daily commitment stemming from the genuine desire to offer undistorted information about a country that is too often a victim of prejudice and superficiality. From November 2016, this service is available in English and Italian with a growing number of original articles with a goal of providing a complete picture of this Balkan country's economy, politics, culture and society. Our archive is completely free of charge, available to anyone who wants to get to know the country, to study its specific aspects, or to be constantly updated about it. This project will only be able to continue with the help of readers on whom we are calling to provide a small financial support so that we can continue supplying an increasingly expanding pool of information and original contributions.
