During his stay in Beijing, Bačević will meet with Chinese officials and representatives of companies interested in cooperation or strategic partnership on the Belgrade-Thessaloniki navigable canal project, the ministry said in a release.
The infrastructure project is important for Serbia, the Balkans and beyond, since it would go through Serbia and Macedonia to the port of Thessaloniki in Greece, according to the authorities.
While in China, Bačević will clear the way for the signing of a protocol of understanding with Chinese state-owned China Gezhouba Group Company, which will be followed by a feasibility study.
Bačević said the ministry would begin preparing a spatial plan of the area the project would cover, according to the release.
"The project is a great developmental opportunity for Serbia and it is very important that we take advantage of it in the best way possible," he stated.
