Vesic, in his address at the Global Sustainable Transport Forum in Beijing, expressed his gratitude for the exceptional cooperation that Serbia has with China in the field of infrastructure, as well as for supporting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Serbia.
At the moment, as he pointed out, Serbia is building more than 1,000 km of highways and expressways, which are located on important regional and European corridors.
According to him, some of the most important projects are being implemented with our Chinese partners, such as the construction of the bypass road around Belgrade, the Fruska Gora corridor, the construction of the Preljina-Pozega section, as part of the South Adriatic highway, which connects Serbia and Montenegro, but also construction of the Danube Corridor.
In addition, together with our Chinese partners, the "Clean Serbia" project is being implemented, the value of which is €3.5 billion, and within which 2.3 million people in Serbia will receive sewage, the minister said.
In cooperation with our Chinese partners, the Belgrade-Novi Sad high-speed railway was built and reconstructed, for speeds of up to 200 km per hour, with a total length of 75 km. The works on the construction of the high-speed railway from Novi Sad to Subotica and to the border with Hungary are in progress, from where our Hungarian partners will build their part of the railway to Budapest, Vesic explained.
He added that the plan is to connect the railway from Nis to Skopje and further to Thessaloniki, as well as from Nis to the border with Bulgaria, while the high-speed railway from Belgrade to Nis will be additionally built, with the help of EU grants.
