EBRD and EU finance reconstruction of urgent care centre in Belgrade
More than 50 years since it opened, Belgrade’s urgent care centre will be reconstructed thanks to a project financed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the European Union (EU).

An €8.8 million EU grant agreement was signed today in the presence of the EBRD’s Western Balkans Regional Director, Matteo Colangeli, the Mayor of Belgrade, Aleksandar Šapić, Ambassador of the European Union to Serbia, Emanuele Giaufret, Minister of European Integration, Tanja Miščević and Minister of Health, Danica Grujičić.

The EU funds, as well as a previously secured €5 million EBRD loan, will finance renovation and expansion works on Belgrade’s urgent care centre. The total investment is expected to cost around €13.8 million.

In addition, the EU has secured a €1.7 million grant for technical assistance to the City of Belgrade to help implement the project and supervise the construction work, review the city’s potential for energy efficiency and put in place a sustainable financing mechanism.
