A time capsule with messages has been symbolically placed, which is integrated into the concrete element that will be used in the construction of the vertical quay, reports Dnevnik.

On this occasion, it was pointed out that today ships that dock in the Port of Novi Sad do so along the coast, and with a new investment it will be possible for ships to dock directly at the quay level.

The director of “DP World” Novi Sad, Claudio Negreanu, said that he was “DP Novi Sad” is the only port operator that has recently been trained to transport goods in containers, so the new terminal will also be a container warehouse. Also, it will be possible for the containers to be packed and immediately placed on a truck or train, because after many years, the railway that passes through the Port will be renewed.

– This is a great investment in the infrastructure of our city and state, which will improve our economic capacities and enable easier transport of goods from Novi Sad to all destinations. I am glad that in these challenging times, DP World’s business activity is not declining. They pay taxes, and we use that money to build kindergartens and asphalt streets, employees get salaries, everything is very connected, Miloš Vučević pointed out.

Corridor 7 is becoming increasingly important for the economy and tourismand as I hear here from the authorities, the ratio of imports and exports is balanced, which is contributed by the good position of Novi Sad and this strong agricultural region, he added.

Minister Momirović pointed out that investing in the Port of Novi Sad is in the interest of the Serbian economy, as well as cooperation with the company DP World, which has committed to invest 30 million euros in the development of the Portreports Dnevnik.

– We’ll have it here in two years one of the largest container terminals in Europe and nine silos with a capacity of 40,000 cubic meters will be built. We have prepared more than half a billion euros of investments in river infrastructure, so we will invest in Bogojevo, Sremska Mitrovica, Prahovo and Belgrade. This is another proof that Serbia is a desirable place for investments of world companies – Momirovic emphasized.

This will be the greatest work in the history of the Port of Novi Sad, and are part of the total investments of “DP World” Novi Sad. The company bought a new crane, new machinery for loading goods, the ship Albatross, which contributed to greater safety and speed of barges entering the port, and built a passenger terminal for Novi Sad, in which more than 500,000 euros were invested.

The Danube is the most important river for transport in Europe and that is why we are investing in new facilities in the Port of Novi Sad in order to make it the most important terminal on the Danube, which is of great importance for the Serbian market, but also for the wider region – said Claudio Negreanu.
