MIHAJLOVIC: SERBIA READY FOR PPP PROJECTS

BELGRADE, 4 June 2018 (Beta) - Construction, Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Zorana Mihajlovic said on June 4 that Serbia was an economically stable country and that it was the right moment for investors to invest in Serbia through public-private partnership (PPP) projects. "In the previous period, we focused on budget stabilization, which was one of the reasons for a smaller number of PPP projects in the past few years, while possibly there was not enough know-how for such projects at the local level," Mhajlovic told the First Serbian Conference on PPP in Belgrade. "Now, we are an economically stable country, we have a clear strategy, legislation aligned with the EU and we are ready to enter PPP projects," she said. According to her, Serbia is currently implementing a major project, an agreement on the Belgrade international Nikola Tesla Airport concession, which would enable investments of nearly EUR740 million over the next five years. "For such investment, the airport would need some 50 years," noted Mihajlovic, who also serves as the deputy prime minister. She also said that an agreement had been signed that would enable the resolution of the Vinca landfill, near Belgrade. Speaking about potential PPP projects, Mihajlovic cited the Pozega-Boljare section of the Corridor 11, the so-called Fruska Gora Corridor and a railway that would link the Nikola Tesla Airport with New Belgrade.
