Meeting with the acting director of the PE "Electric Power Industry of Serbia" and a representative of the Kolubara Miners' Union
President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić met earlier today with the acting director of the PE "Electric Power Industry of Serbia" Milorad Grčić and the representative of the Kolubara Minsers' Union Miodrag Ranković, to discuss the future of the EPS company and new production and development projects.
The President heard the remarks and proposals made on behalf of the Kolubara miners by the representative of the trade Union and the views of the PE "Electric Power Industry of Serbia", as a company of strategic importance for the Republic of Serbia.
The President emphasised that the issue of the "green agenda" implementation is one of the most important in the complex field of energy and pointed out that Serbia is seriously committed to introducing the highest standards in using the potentials of renewable energy sources and consequently - preserving the environment.
On the other hand, President Vučić pointed out that Serbia cannot deprive itself and give up the natural resources that enable the energy independence of the state. The President particularly insisted that he would continue talks with the representatives of the Government of Serbia and the expert public to find a sustainable solution so that Serbia would not become a major importer of electricity from 2030.
The representative of the Trade Union, Miodrag Ranković, conveyed the miners' request to President Vučić to visit Kolubara and answer all their questions.
