Sinisa Mali, Serbia’s Finance Minister, said on Tuesday the construction of the Belgrade underground would begin by the end of the next year and that a Chines and French companies would be in charge of building it.


After taking to the representatives of Power China Construction Corporation and Alstom SA, a French multinational rolling stock manufacturer, and the ambassadors of the two countries Chen Bo and Jean Louis Falconi, Mali said the legal documents would be adopted by the end of this year.

The French company will be in charge of the electro-mechanic, while the Chinese will work on the construction of the underground.
