Baku, Azerbaijan, May 22
By Anvar Mammadov - Trend:
Serbia has invited the Azerbaijan Railways CJSC to participate in the modernization of the country's railway system, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said.
Vucic made the remarks at the Azerbaijani-Serbian business meeting in Baku May 22.
He added that Serbia will be happy to see competitive Azerbaijani companies in its market.
“The Russian Railways JSC has carried out this work for us so far,” he said. “The railways of Serbia need repair. If you are competitive, and as good as Azvirt [an Azerbaijani company that implemented a number of successful road projects in Serbia], you can come and take part in the repair of our railways.”
The total length of railways in Serbia is 3,808.7 kilometers, of which 3,533.2 kilometers are single-track and 275.5 kilometers are double-track railways. Some 1,191.1 kilometers of railways, including standard-gauge ones, have been electrified.
