The President of the Republic pointed out that the current mayor of East Novo Sarajevo Jovan Katić and his predecessor Ljubisa Ćosić, together with the institutions of the Republic of Srpska, have created a place with more residents and children, which increases the need for new facilities and offers.
After the meeting with the mayor and a joint tour of the Park of remarkable people, locations where the lake and the kindergarten will be built, the President of Srpska said that with today’s visit she wants to support the vision of building the municipality of East New Sarajevo.
“I thank Mayor Katić for the invitation, who wants this municipality to continue to develop, as it has developed so far, without losing this dynamic which is visible and present throughout the year”, said the President Cvijanović.
The President of the Republic of Srpska said that a recreational centre with a lake and a whole range of other facilities would be built here, which would be a peaceful oasis for the residents of this local community, and expressed satisfaction because there is a need for facilities for preschool and school children.
The President of the Republic supported the construction of a new school, but also a kindergarten, for which she said that the Office of the President of the Republic of Srpska will participate in co-financing that project.
