Metaloplastika, Šabac Fair, Tekeriški Towel, National Museum, the largest industrial zone in Serbia, the most modern wastewater treatment plant. The list of unique features of of Šabac is becoming ever longer, and the comprehensive development plans of the new management guarantee our city recognition as the most desirable business location in Serbia.
NEW MOTORWAY, BRIDGE AND PIER
We want to secure the position of economic development leader by completing the most important infrastructure projects. First and foremost are capital investments, construction of the motorway Ruma–Šabac, a new bridge over the Sava and a fast road to Loznica to connect us with our most important motorways – Miloš the Great and Corridor 10. The drive to Belgrade will be shortened to 40 minutes. Besides this, the construction of a port is planned, which will make Šabac the second town on the Sava with international river passenger traffic. Thanks to the vision of President Aleksandar Vučić and the willingness to make huge investments in road infrastructure, Šabac will open its doors to new investors in October 2023, when the works are expected to be completed, providing new jobs and a better standard of living through faster development.
CHINESE BUILDING NEW FACTORY
That foreigners want to invest in Šabac is also shown by the announced opening of a new plant of the Chinese company Mint Automotive in the Northwest Industrial Zone, which will be the biggest investment for the city after the arrival of the Japanese Jazaki. Much attention is paid to shortening the time for obtaining permits and removing barriers to investment. The unique administrative position of the public administration enables efficient provision of services, as well as fast and simple communication between business and municipality. Thanks to the support of the Republic, funds have been provided to expand the water and sewerage networks, for the construction of wastewater treatment plants in the town, suburbs and villages of Šabac.
Environmental Protection, Health And Education
Environmental protection in Šabac is also a priority of the municipal administration and we have already taken the first steps by setting up a mobile automatic air quality control station on the main square, and sizeable funds are being allocated so that the Public Health Institute can measure pollution at several points. We are also looking at the possibility of using cleaner energy sources. As only 30% of possible users are connected to the gas network, we see a solution in reducing the connection fee. An important part of improving local life is investing in health care, which is especially prominent in these difficult times, and we do this from day to day, both at the general hospital and the health centre. Furthermore, constant investment must be made in education to provide children with all the conditions for acquiring knowledge. We want an educated and professional workforce that will enable us to make Šabac a city of the future, in which young people want to live and work, and high-tech companies to invest
