"Thank you for your hard work! This hospital is very important because we are facing a difficult autumn, as well as the whole of Europe. I am happy that we were ready and able to invest tremendous funds as a state - four billion in this facility alone, while at least two billion will be invested in equipment. I am pleased that we have included the Serbian construction industry and that our companies follow the schedules. This is an incredible speed of construction. It is incredible progress; I am proud of the workers! This will be a large and impressive hospital," said President Vučić.
