The Belt and Road project of cooperation between China and 16 Central and East European countries, which also involves Serbia, is among the most significant ones in the world, Serbian FM Ivica Dacic has told the Xinhua news agency.
Serbia stands to benefit from Chinese investments by increasing its exports and GDP growth, the China Daily quoted Dacic as saying.
The cooperation includes the areas of the economy, infrastructure, communications, education, science, as well as ties among European countries, he said.
“This, in a way, represents a global initiative approved and well-received by a great number of countries, including both EU members and countries that are not part of the EU, both EU candidate countries and those that are not candidates. I think that it is one serious initiative and that it will produce serious results in all areas,” he said.
