On this occasion, Stojčić stated that Slovenia has made the most progress in this area and initiated something like this.

– The experience of Slovenia helped us to see what are the achievements, obstacles and problems in the implementation of this idea in big cities. This experience shortened our time to get some results. We are most proud of the Sustainable Mobility Plan, which was among the three candidates for winning the first place a few months ago. Unfortunately, we did not get the first place, but we feel rewarded because we were in strong competition. We experience as a reward the fact that we are included in the three most successful cities. The city of Belgrade is currently working on a general urban plan. We are trying to reduce the word urbanism, in order to emphasize the essential thing, and that is that it is a strategic plan for the development of Belgrade in the next 20 years, which will have an impact even after 2041. As one of the most important settings of this strategic plan, which should define a better life for the citizens of Belgrade and a better ecology. Also, to try to deal with one of the biggest problems in Belgrade, and that is traffic – said Stojčić.

He emphasized that the City of Belgrade has 650 thousand cars on the city streets.

– This is a large number for a city of this size and for the area of ​​roads we have. It is clear that the Sustainable Mobility Plan that we have adopted defines a new hierarchy in traffic, which says that pedestrians are the most important, followed by cyclists, then public city transport and in fourth place the car. We will integrate this into the general urban plan and it will spill over into all other functions of the city in terms of implementation, so that we can have an improved network of sustainable urban mobility in the coming years – said Stojčić.

He also referred to the construction of the line park and added that it will be 4.6 kilometers long.

– It is based on the conclusions from the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan. We also plan to significantly expand the pedestrian zones. Belgrade is one of the cities in Europe that is at the forefront of cardiovascular diseases, and this will cause the number of patients to fall thanks to walking and cycling. Also, the construction of the subway will begin at the end of November. After the completion of the first line in 2028 and the second line in 2030, we will get a two-line metro system that will help us offer citizens an alternative in relation to car traffic – concluded Stojčić.

Assistant Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Djordje Milic stated that the Republic has adopted the Strategy of Internal Sustainable Urban Development.

– We have reached a certain degree of motorization. Motor vehicles are worn out and we need to look at how to move on to those that will not pollute the environment. One of the interesting projects is that, in cooperation with the National Association for Electric Vehicles, we encourage the construction of a research center where experts in the field of electric vehicles would engage in innovation – said Milić.

The representative of the Secretariat of the "CIVINIT Slovenia – Croatia – Southeast Europe” network, Lidija Pavić-Rogašić, stated that this network has existed since 2013 and has 197 members.
