“Commercial contract for this project was agreed on yesterday in the negotiations and I expect that on Monday the draft contract will be submitted to the Government’s Working Group and Thursday to Government’s session, where I hope it will be adopted. The site for the commencement of works has been prepared, on the section near Krusevac, and we expect the works to begin in 10 to 15 days," said Mihajlovic, answering questions from reporters after American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) conference "Seventh Time Pass - 2019 ".
