Vucic also noted that 27 companies were interested in the concession of the Nikola Tesla Airport
, among which were companies from China, France and Germany.
He added that there would be a big battle for the concession, as everyone saw Belgrade as an important place and a meeting point of all roads, not just in Southeast Europe, but in a considerable part of the entire Europe as well.
Vucic also said that Etihad was also to be thanked for an increase in the number of tourists in Serbia and Belgrade.
– Last year, there were 1.1 million tourists in Belgrade and slightly over 2 million in Serbia. We can dramatically increase those numbers and boast four or five million tourists. We needed Etihad for all that and we couldn't have done it without them – Vucic said.
