That is what Serbian Minister of Economy Zeljko Sertic said on Tuesday, a day after the signing of the contract to sell Serbia's Zelezara Smederevo steel factory to China's He Steel.
Speaking for state broadcaster RTS, Sertic said there were "great expectations" from the sale in terms of both GDP growth and modernization of steel production in Serbia.
Sertic said that the Chinese company would equip Zelezara with the latest technology, the same that they had in their other factories around the world and would also introduce different type of relationship between the menagement and workers, suppliers, customers and others.
"I expect great progress and overall improvement in doing business from this change," said Sertic.
