“Nis needs to get attributes of big cities”, said Niš City Mayor Dragana Sotirovski at a meeting with representatives of the City of Nis Office for Local Economic Development and Projects. Suggesting all projects for which the Office could apply, whether they attract domestic or foreign investors, Mayor Sotirovski pointed out that she expected constant information from OLEDP Team on a daily basis so that all projects important for Nis could be prepared and executed timely. Niš needs new kindergartens, factories for hard-to-employ categories of the population, new green markets, favorable economic environment, but also a botanical garden, a zoo and everything that makes the city modern. It is also important to regularly apply for funds that would solve the problem of Roma settlements in the long run. The representatives of OLEDP will offer support mechanisms to all plans related to economic development and they are ready, as they say, to consistently report to the Mayor on all potentially good projects that could bring Nis significant development funds.
