Brnabic assessed that "Buk Bijela" is just one element in the mosaic of our relations and a project that opens many other doors.
It is a strategic project that gives us energy and courage to dream much bigger dreams. This is a new beginning in the relations between Serbia and Srpska, but also in the entire region. It is in the interest of future generations who will use this hydroelectric power plant, who will not know the borders for people, capital and projects, who will stay here to live, Brnabic said.
Prime Minister of Republika Srpska Radovan Viskovic said that we have been waiting for more than 60 years to start this project, which will be finished in four years.
This is a project that means life, connection, survival and prosperity, said Viskovic.
Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Mining and Energy Zorana Mihajlovic stated that the plan is for the HPP to be ready in four years and that this is not the only project that Serbia and Republika Srpska will jointly implement.
This is a historic day, because there has been talk of "Buk Bijela" for decades, said Mihajlovic.
Republika Srpska Minister of Energy and Mining Petar Djokic said that Republika Srpska and the residents of Foca have been waiting for this event for a long time and that Republika Srpska is opening a new chapter of life, work and cooperation with Serbia and companies on both sides of the border, which will contribute to economic growth and development of Serbia and Republika Srpska.
