Deputy PM: US's DFC arrival of immense importance for Serbia

February 7, 2020

Serbia's Deputy Prime Minister in charge of Construction, Traffic and Infrastructure Zorana Mihajlovic said on Friday that the US International Development Finance Corporation (DFC) arrival in Serbia was of a great significance to the country, since President Donald Trump had appointed all people that led the company, the FoNet news agency reported, citing Mihajlovic's office statement.

As an independent agency of the US Government, DFC provides financing for private development projects.

The Deputy Prime Minister met with Caleb McCarry, Counselor to the DFC CEO, in Belgrade and the two discussed possible cooperation in infrastructural projects, the statement said.

"This is a good and meaningful sign for our country and yet another confirmation of its stability. We talked about the infrastructural projects and the new investment cycle 'Serbia 2020-2025'. We believe we will see more American investments in our country," Mihajlovic said.

McCarry was quoted as saying that Serbia was a relevant European country, regional leader and critical state for regional stability and prosperity. He added that the DFC was ready to work with Serbia and support its economic investments and further development.
