May 15, 2000Housing construction project starts
Vranje, May 15 - At today's central ceremony in Vranje, Serbian Prime Minister Mirko Marjanovic marked the beginning of works on the building of 100,000 apartments whose realization starts at the same time in 19 centers in Serbia.
Accelerated housing construction is an essential development goal - each year 10,000 families will solve the most important problem in their life, and besides the full employment of construction workers, a chain of production will be started in industry, Marjanovic said at a large popular rally of tens of thousands of residents of the Pcinj and Jablanica districts.
"The realization of each of these projects will give a new impetus to speedy economic growth and the development of the entire country, the creation of new jobs for young and educated people, a rise of standard and better life for citizens," Marjanovic said.
Pointing out that heroic defense and major results in the reconstruction and development of the country are the main reason of the growing recognition of Yugoslavia and its just struggle for freedom and sovereignty, Marjanovic said that was the reason why the greatest majority of countries and all progressive countries of the world demand the lifting of illegal sanctions against Serbia, and those who still implement them are aware they are meaningless.
