Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic spoke in Istanbul today with the proprietor of the textile company Tai Group, Mesut Toprak, who plans to invest EUR 35 million in a factory in Kraljevo.
“A Turkish company will launch its operations in Kraljevo by the end of September, and employ 2,500 workers. I spoke with the company’s CEO in Istanbul,” Vucic said. The Serbian President is due to meet with the Turkish President and a member of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s presidency, Member Bakir Izetbegovic tomorrow.
In his statement for Pink TV, Vucic added that the arrival of a Turkish investor in Kraljevo was “extraordinary news” and that he was “very happy” because of the new factory local authorities would have more funds for nurseries, schools, and healthcare facilities.
Vucic and Izetbegovic will discuss the cooperation in the Balkans and the relations between the Serbs and Bosniaks in Bosnia and Herzegovina with the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan tomorrow in Ankara
Vucic confirmed that the main topics of this discussion would be Turkey’s economic and political policies in the Balkans, and what the country expected in relations between Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
