  • I. Overview

    Serbia is located in the central part of the Balkan Peninsula in southeastern Europe. It borders Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary. The land area is about 88,400 square kilometers. One-fifth of the Danube River, the second largest river in Europe, flows through its territory. The official language is Serbian, and many people are proficient in English.

    The Serbia-China Industrial Park, covering an area of 3.2 square kilometers, is excellently located in the suburb of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, on the northern bank of the Danube River. It is 14 kilometers from the old city area of Belgrade, 6.2 kilometers from the new city area, 13 kilometers from the Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport, and 20 kilometers from Belgrade Port and Belgrade Railway Station. The industrial park is close to the Zemun-Bolcha Bridge. All these render the industrial park easily accessible by all transportation means.

    The industrial park is jointly developed by China Communications Construction, a large Chinese SOE, and the Serbian government. The China Road & Bridge Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Communications Construction, and CCCC Industrial Investment Co., Ltd. jointly established a company to operate the park. In November 2015, a memorandum of understanding on the Serbia-China Industrial Park was signed. During the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in April 2019, the investment development agreement was formally signed. It is expected to officially start construction at the end of 2023.
