Zorana Mihajlović PhD. Serbian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure

Turning Point for Serbian Infrastructure

The Government of Serbia is launching a new cycle of investment in infrastructure in 2019 that's worth more than five billion euros. Investing in new road, rail, water and air transport projects will strengthen Serbia's position as a transport hub of the region, placing the construction sector as the bearer of the country's economic growth and development

Miodrag Poledica, State Secretary at the Ministry of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure

New Investment Cycle = New Development Opportunity

Development of the road network should enable Serbia to connect with all of its neighbours in such a way that travelling to any capital in the region will not take more than three to four hours. In order to achieve the full effect of building new infrastructure, it is also necessary to reduce retention times at border crossings

Lazar Radaković, Assistant Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, for Railways and Intermodal Transport

New Face of Serbian Railways

The largest investments in the past several decades are currently being realised in rail transport. The previous period has seen the renovating of more than 500 kilometres of tracks, while the plan is to complete the modernisation of the complete rail route of Corridor 10 in the next few years, as well as the railroad to Bar, Montenegro

Zoran Ilić, Assistant Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure

We’re Continuing Investments In Airports

The concession for Nikola Tesla Airport secured investment of 732 million euros in the development of the Belgrade airport, while the Government of Serbia will continue to invest in the development of small airports

Veljko Kovačević Ph.d. Assistant Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure for Inland Water Transport

Serbia Will Have The Region’s Most Modern Ports

Once the most neglected branch of transport, water transport is today an integral part of the new investment cycle for infrastructure. Investing in the development of ports and river infrastructure will enable Serbia to fully utilise its strategic position in the region and the Danube's potential as a European transport corridor

Jovanka Atanacković, Assistant Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure for Construction

Construction Drives Economic Growth

The results of reforms in the construction industry are visible through an influx of new investments, construction growth in the number of construction permits, active construction sites, the value of construction works and, most importantly, GDP growth

Dragan Gavrilović, General Manager, Sika Serbia D.O.O. (LLC)

Sika – A Symbol of Innovative Power

Zoran Lakićević, State Secretary at the Ministry of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure

Investments in Utility Infrastructure for Safe Water Supplies and A Healthy Environment

The utility infrastructure projects that Serbia is implementing in the field of water supply, wastewater management and solid waste management, with the support of German development bank KfW, contribute to increasing quality of life for about two million people, or close to a third of Serbian citizens

Sebastian Kurz, Chancellor of Austria

The Balkans Impact Austria Directly

Any solution (for Kosovo) needs to have the support of the major powers, particularly the permanent members of the Security Council. We have an interest in being in close partnership with the United States regarding the Western Balkans and to have their support in encouraging progress on this important issue – Sebastian Kurz

Matthew Palmer, U.S. Department of State

United States Does Not Offer Ready-Made Solutions

The [normalisation] process and the agreement itself should be locally-owned; only in this way can it be durably implemented in both Kosovo and Serbia. United States encourages the parties to demonstrate their full ownership of the process, reduce negative rhetoric, and work together constructively toward an agreement – Matthew Palmer
