Chinese Shandong interested in construction of Belgrade-Zrenjanin motorway

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Zorana Mihajlović spoke today with representatives of the Chinese company Shandong about possible cooperation on the new project of construction of the Belgrade-Zrenjanin motorway.

Mihajlović underlined that the cooperation between Serbia and the People’s Republic of China in the field of infrastructure has been going on for a long time, and all the projects that are being implemented with that country are working efficiently and can be an example to many other investors in Serbia.

She said that the priority at this stage of the new project is to prepare complete project and technical documentation, after which models of financing will be discussed.

At the meeting, attended by Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to Serbia Li Manchang, representatives of Shandong expressed readiness to cooperate with the Serbian government on the new project.

The construction of a new motorway through Vojvodina, around 66 km long, will enable the merging of Belgrade, specifically Borča and Zrenjanin, and will contribute to the successful realisation of the investments launched and attracting new ones in Zrenjanin and Banat.
