Immediately after arriving at the construction site, Vučić held a short meeting with company representatives.
After that, Jan-Willem Dockheer, CEO of Delhaize Serbia, founder and CEO of VGP Jan Van Geet as well as the director of VGP Serbia Nenad Bjelogrlić, and then the president of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić addressed the audience.
"In Serbia, we have always underestimated the importance of logistics centers and did not understand how important it is to have good logistics in order for costs to be lower and products to be better... It is difficult to imagine any success in production and trade without logistics. I am glad that Mr. Van Geet was fond of our country," said Vučić in his address.
He pointed out that it is significant that the VGP came to Serbia.
Park on an area of more than one million square meters
The future VGP Park Belgrade will cover an area of more than one million square meters and is located next to the M-70 and M-75 highways, as well as the Belgrade ring road.
The location of VGP Park is near Nikola Tesla International Airport, just 15 kilometers west of the city center.
The foundation stone will be laid by the President of the Republic of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, and Jan Van Geet, Executive Director of the VGP, the organizers announced.
