By signing this agreement Serbia got an independent gas operator. There are many steps ahead of us, it is in the national interest to make investments in this sector efficient. It is important to build main gas pipelines, to get connected with the region and make the gas price more sustainable, both for citizens and the economy, the Minister stated.
