Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic stated today in Paris that the subway project in Belgrade had been discussed at her meeting with the MEDEF employers' federation, the Government of Serbia announced.

– Several French companies are interested in this project and we will continue working on it. The task force for the Belgrade subway project has been formed within the government. I hope that there will soon be some concrete agreements about this – Brnabic said at the end of her visit to France.

She said that, since 2018, when French companies were the biggest investors in Serbia, their presence in the country had visibly increased.

– Around 100 French companies currently employ around 11,000 people in Serbia, but I invited them to come in even greater numbers and invest – Brnabic said.

The French company Egis, under a contract signed with the City of Belgrade, has completed the general Project and the Pre-Feasibility Study for Subway lines 1 and 2 and the the Final Report has been approved by the commission in charge of this phase of the project.

Let us remind that Serbian Finance Minister Sinisa Mali met with representative of French companies Egis and Alstrom and representatives of POWERCHINA to discuss the subway project.

The Government of Serbia recently formed the task force for the realization of the project, whose task it is to prepare acceptable technical, commercial and financial solutions for the realization of this project together with POWERCHINA.
