Xinhua reported that construction of another vital segment of Serbia's new E763 highway was started by the China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) near the city of Cacak in central Serbia. The ceremony marking the start of work on the over 30-kilometer Preljina-Pozega section of the new highway took place near the village of Pakovrace, some 150 kilometers south of the capital Belgrade. Serbian President Mr Aleksandar Vucic, government members, CCCC President Mr Song Hailiang, Chinese Ambassador to Serbia Chen Bo, as well as local officials attended the ceremony.

In his speech, Mr Vucic said that several Chinese companies are already at work on the new E763 highway, and that the new section promises to be the most difficult to build as it includes 12 kilometers of tunnels and more than 30 bridges. The new highway is important for both investors and locals, as it will bring life to the nearby villages and cities.

He announced that Serbia plans to complete the remaining 107-kilometer stretch of the highway between Pozega and the Montenegrin in partnership with Chinese companies.

Song, the CCCC president, thanked the Serbian government for entrusting his company with this important project and pledged to complete the highway at the highest quality and within the agreed deadlines.

He said that "We hope the E763 will boost the country's economic development and bring prosperity to the Serbian people for a better future."

Ms Zorana Mihajlovic, minister of construction, transport and infrastructure, said that the new section will count among the most important ones along the entire highway corridor, stressing that it will have an immense effect on the economic development of this part of Serbia.
