The world-renowned Financial Times magazine once again ranked Sabac in the top ten destinations for competition in small cities from Ireland, Latvia, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
Sabac Mayor Nebojsa Zelenovic pointed to accelerated development over the past six years.
The number of employees increased from 30,000 to 40,100, the average salary increased from 350 euros to 430 euros, the number of companies increased from 796 to 1100, and in the last year alone there were 80 new ones.
Also, the number of entrepreneurs increased by the new thousand. The investors, first of all, look at the conditions of business and environment, and Sabac is the only one in Serbia that has a functional wastewater treatment plant, solved the problem of taking municipal waste to a sanitary landfill, a customs terminal, a training center.
Here investors also get a fully equipped parcel, with connections for electricity, water, gas and sewage.
All this is taken care of by the Economic Council, where any annoyance pointed out by investors is eliminated.
Mayor Zelenovic believes that this award is, above all, a reward for organizing life in the city.
The construction of the Ruma-Sabac-Loznica highway is passing through the largest industrial zone in the Balkans, which will provide much more attractive investment conditions. The city will expand according to environmental principles, Savapark is a new green oasis on 300 hectares, a completely new concept of urban transport is introduced where buses will depart every 20 minutes, buildings are thermally insulated with considerable energy savings and Sabac will be the first city to introduce urban recycling waste.
The city administration works to the highest international standards, every penny is taken care of and citizens can control it. For the next period, as the mayor pointed out, only the one who will not work will be unemployed in Sabac, Danas reports.
