Addressing the journalists after the meeting, Vesic pointed out that six laws and two by-laws will be adopted during the year, and our legislation will be fully harmonised with European regulations and standards in the field of transport.
According to him, although our country is a candidate for membership, the Union must treat Serbia as a member, because many European corridors pass through our territory, and some of the EU countries do not even have a real connection with other EU countries without Serbia.
That is why we are in a better position here than other sectors, since the EU, by investing in transport in Serbia, is investing in its better connectivity, he underlined and expressed gratitude on behalf of the government for the EU donation for the Nis-Belgrade high-speed railway, in the amount of €600 million.
At the meeting, as he reported, other projects for which the EU provides grants were discussed, namely the rehabilitation and electrification of five regional railways in Serbia, 588 kilometres long.
Vesic also announced that he informed the interlocutors in Brussels that final talks are underway with companies from North Macedonia and Albania about a common TAG device in order to make traveling through the Balkans easier.
He reiterated the government's position that regardless of the fact that joining the Union is a political decision, Serbia, for the sake of itself and its citizens, should harmonise its regulations with the EU, because the Union is our largest foreign trade partner and grant provider.
