The Chinese builder may sign a preliminary agreement with the Serbian government in about 10 days for two sections needed to complete the Belgrade bypass, Serbia’s Transportation Ministry said in an e-mailed statement after talks with the company’s executives in Belgrade today. The work is estimated at 540 million euros ($703 million).
“CMEC is interested to secure the money for realization of the project from the Chinese development fund” which is worth about $10 billion, the Serbian ministry said in the statement, adding that construction of one of the sections may begin in early 2014.
