The waste processing plant in Vinca, in the construction of which the French company “Veolia” is participating, should be completed by the end of the year. H.E. Pierre Koshar, the French ambassador to Serbia, says that the project is one of three major investments in Belgrade, in which French companies are engaged, and is very important because it will also contribute to the production of thermal energy for heating the citizens of Belgrade.
Košar adds for Tanjug that French companies in Serbia are mostly engaged in “long-term” projects, which, he says, will last up to 25 years.
“French companies have this tendency and our government supports it. I am sure that there will be good news for our bilateral economic relations in the coming period,” says Koshar.
When asked if there is reason to fear that the crisis in the world, as a consequence of the war in Ukraine, could jeopardize the implementation of projects involving French companies and French capital – construction of the Belgrade metro and modernization of Nikola Tesla Airport, whose operator it became Vancy’s company for a period of 25 years, ambassador Koshar points out that in the previous period, French companies have proven to be resilient and that they can realize their plans despite the difficulties.
