Kikinda Mayor Pavle Markov signed an agreement in the offices of the Government of the Republic of Serbia on the construction of a water factory in the town, which is to be implemented in cooperation with German development bank KfW as a project worth six million euros.

Alongside Mayor Markov, the contract was also signed by Serbian Deputy PM and Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, Zorana Mihajlović PhD, Finance Minister Dušan Vujović, and the director of municipal infrastructure projects for Southeast Europe and Turkey from KfW headquarters in Frankfurt, Kirk Milner.

Deputy PM Mihajlović said that her Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Ministry is striving to resolve the tangible problems of citizens.

This very important signing event was also attended by German Ambassador to Serbia, H.E. Axel Dittmann, who said that since the year 2000 Germany has provided Serbia with €1.6 billion through development assistance, with €230 million of that amount allocated for water supply and wastewater treatment purposes.
Ambassador said that the signing of this contract would provide the basis to implement comprehensive revitalisation works on water supply systems and wastewater treatment in four local governments, which will benefit thousands of citizens.

Ambassador Dittmann thanked the Government of Serbia and the local government on their good cooperation.
