“Our plans are for the same companies, Power China and Azvirt, to start construction works on Segment C, and I am very satisfied with all our achievements in infrastructure with China,”
 
Mihajlovic said Serbia signed a memorandum with China for Segment C of the Belgrade Bypass, and will apply for a loan by June this year.
 
The Belgrade Bypass still has eight bridges and four tunnels which need to be constructed, and it aims to make transit through the Serbian capital less crowded.
 
Chinese ambassador to Serbia Chen Bo said, so far, infrastructure has been the most visible part of the Serbia-China cooperation, resulting in numerous mutually beneficial projects.
