The company Voda Voda from Mionica in western Serbia and Caro General Trading from Kuwait have signed a contract, the government announced.
Under it, three million liters of water will be exported from Serbia in Kuwait.
This is according to Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications Rasim Ljajic, who attended the signing.
Ljajic also said that this was “the result of the work on improvement of economic cooperation between the two countries.”
According to the Serbian official “this agreement will also enable other companies from Serbia to sell their water in Arab countries, as demand for our water is high.”
Serbia is known for its high-quality mineral water, and cooperation with Kuwait will open the door for joint cooperation on other projects, he said.
Ljajic said that our country has more than 300 mineral springs, around 25 water treatment plants, where capacity is not used enough.
Speaking of potentials for cooperation, the minister said that Serbia “has already received a credit from Kuwait for the railway station Prokop, and added that there is an announcement that Kuwait will finance other projects,” the government said on its website.
