said that this was 59th factory or plant he has opened and it has clearly shown
that in Serbia we had great progress in economy and employment. He has
emphasized that he was happy because it was another German investment, at the
same time he has invited other German companies to invest in Serbia where they can
find the best business conditions.
„I am convinced that IGB Automotive Comp in
Indjija will have hired 2,500 employees until the end of the year, among them
engineers too, and that it will increase the salaries and bonuses. We are
living in the region where is the general phenomenon that it is always easier
to say something than to do something, where is easy to criticize others and
hard to find responsibility. With this new plant we have fulfilled everything
we have promised in April last year. Today we have 600 new employees with good
jobs and secure future. I know that we must achieve higher life standard, that
workers work hard, but only with hard work we can advance because nothing will fall
from the sky,“ pointed out Mr Vučić.
of Indjija, Vladimir Gak, thanked to the Prime Minister Aleksandar Vučić for
his support and German investor for recognising the town of Indjija as the best
environment for investment. „The main goal of our municipality is that each
investor is treated like a part of our community, to sympathize with us if we
have neglected schools, if some of our streets are not asphalted or if some
medical institution needs new equipment. IGB Automotive Comp is recognized as
socially responsible company and it is a great pleasure doing business with
company like that. When we took the responsibility to lead the municipality of
Indjija we promised that by the year 2020 Inđija will become the biggest
construction site in Srem. We are doing as we promised and that would be
impossible without support of Government of the Republic of Serbia and The Provincial Government,“ said Mr Gak.
and greeting 5,000 citizens, Mr Vučić said that only together, with dedicated
and hard work, people can build strong Serbia.
