The vice-president of Skoda, Zdenek Majer, announced yesterday that the company had made the decision to start building trams in Kragujevac by the end of 2021.

He said this at a meeting with the deputy mayor of Belgrade, Goran Vesic, who, at the invitation of Czech companies, has presented, in Prague, the possibilities of investments in Belgrade, Beoinfo reports.

Vesic notified the Czech hosts that the City of Belgrade “will buy 80 new trolleys and 120 trams in the next five years, so, along with the purchase of 500 natural gas buses, the first hundred of which are already being procured, this will mean the full replacement of the rolling stock of the public transport company”.

He invited Skoda to take part in the tenders that the city is to open in the upcoming months.

Vesic also visited the company EP Holding, which is interested in investing in the energy sector in Belgrade, heating plants and new facilities for the production of heating and electrical energy. EP Holding is one of the biggest European companies in this field.

At the meeting with Czech companies interested in investing in Belgrade, Vesic said that, up till then, the biggest Czech investments were made in construction and real estate.

– We are grateful to Czech companies which invest in our city, making the city better through their investments. We also invite other Czech companies from other fields to invest in Belgrade – Vesic said.
