Firstly, Serbia is well located in terms of logistics. Secondly, MTU is very much welcomed and accepted by the local authorities.

This is a technologically highly important project which will employ engineers and give an opportunity to highly skilled workers”, said Vučić. As he added, today German companies in Serbia employ more than 77.000 people.
