Deputy Prime Minister for Economic and Regional Development Verica Kalanovic talked on Saturday in Astana with President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) Thomas Mirow about infrastructure projects in Serbia.
Kalanovic and Mirow who attended in Kazakhstan’s capital the annual meeting and business forum of the EBRD, spoke about this bank’s support to the sector of medium-sized enterprises in Serbia, especially in the field of auto components and the food industry.
Kalanovic pointed out that the EBRD should be more flexible when it comes to redirecting savings from previously approved credit lines for works on Corridor 10 and thus help build roads that will connect major economic centres in Serbia with this international corridor.
Kalanovic and Mirow also examined in detail the processes that are necessary in order to speed up the release of the approved loans.
The Serbian delegation, led by Kalanovic, has so far had a series of meetings with EBRD representatives and member states of the Swiss constituency, the voting group within the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
