Zdravko Mladenović, Mayor Of Batočina

Strategic Position Is Our Main Asset

400,000 people live within a of 30 km radius of Batočina. We are located near Corridor 10, an hour from Belgrade and have two industrial zones. We know how to use such potential.


The key priorities of the municipal management are investment in infrastructure, especially in the construction of our own water supply system, sewerage network and wastewater regulation. Also, in order to provide good conditions for investment to businesses and potential investors, we must think about business infrastructure, or completing the equipment of our two industrial zones and creating an environment for attracting investment to reduce unemployment. Reducing unemployment is our top priority and my assessment of the scope and speed of the implementation of reforms is positive, because they really enable investors to realize their investments easily.


The municipality of Batočina has an excellent geographical position and it is our main and so far underused asset. We are located on the largest road in our country, exactly halfway between Belgrade and Niš and are practically an unavoidable stop when entering the regional industrial centre of Kragujevac. We are working on using our potential to build production facilities or distribution centres in one of our two industrial zones.

One of our main promoters is the company Brzan Plast, the only waste plastic processor in Serbia. This family company founded on the territory of our municipality is a real example of how quality businesses can successfully develop in our environment. There are also companies such as Grah automotive, Aluroll, Polipak and others. Agriculture is our main occupation and we invest a lot through subsidies, and we see an opportunity in investing in tourism, culture and folk crafts.


We will always direct anyone wanting to know more about Batočina to the village of Brzan to see the Church Brvnara, built in 1822 by Prince Miloš Obrenović. The church is a monument and was active for more than 100 years until the construction of a new one, and now it is a landmark for guests from Serbia and the inhabitants of Batočina. Also on the territory of our municipality you will find Jerina cave, formed in the Paleolithic era, around 25,000 BC. It is one of the oldest archaeological sites and one of the first places of ancient life in Serbia.

State Support Is Important

Our task is to recognize the needs of our residents, and for the state to create an environment to provide them with good living conditions. The state has really made great efforts in recent years to make both small and underdeveloped municipalities attractive for investment. By supporting the equipping of industrial zones and finding foreign investors, the state can significantly improve the overall environment in a small municipality such as Batočina. On the other hand, investment in infrastructure, roads and public facilities should not be neglected, and the state has developed a strong mechanism of assistance to local governments through the Office for Public Investment Management.
