The President of the Republic of Srpska Željka Cvijanović met today with the leadership of the Municipality of Lopare.

The President of the Republic stated that through the cooperation of the republic and local level, it is necessary to resolve several important strategic issues for this local community, among which the issue of road infrastructure is particularly important.

After the meeting with the Mayor of Lopare Rado Savić, the President of Srpska pointed out that the construction of the water supply system also takes a priority place.

“We understand the need to intervene here and I believe that all these procedures within our Ministry of Finance will be completed in order to resolve such a big issue”, said the President Cvijanović.

The President of the Republic emphasized that at the meeting with the leadership of this municipality she had the opportunity to hear what the real problems facing this local community are, but also to discuss how to overcome problems with the joint cooperation through the local and national level.

The President Cvijanović reminded that cooperation with the leadership of the municipality of Lopare has existed before and reminded that they solved numerous problems of citizens after the 2014 floods through landslide remediation, and joint construction of 100 houses through the arrangement of the UNDP, local community and the Government.

The President of Srpska pointed out that those were difficult, challenging times, in which the authorities at both levels showed that when they gather and when they mobilise powers, they can do good things for the citizens.

“I am certain, and today the Mayor and his associates confirmed it to me, that many of those people who were left homeless at the time, would leave this local community. However, we intervened quickly and in that way we solved the problem”, it was emphasized by the President Cvijanović.

The President of the Republic expressed satisfaction with what those houses look like today, noting that this is an example of a well-implemented project.

“We will continue to work. There are many needs. We also agreed that together we will change the carpentry and make a new facade at the kindergarten”, said the President Cvijanović.

The President of Srpska stated that she planned to intervene from the Office of the President of the Republic towards a sports club.

“We want to participate and enable our athletes to have better conditions and to be able to achieve sports goals”, noted the President of the Republic.

The President Cvijanović added that the common message of today’s meeting is that the authorities understand the problems, and that they want to work together.

“We want to develop each of our local communities, because it implies the development of the Republic of Srpska, and I am sure that when we work together, no matter where we are on the political spectrum, we are essentially fulfilling what our mission is and what our citizens expect from us”, it was emphasized by the President of Srpska.

The President of the Republic of Srpska Željka Cvijanović visited the hall under construction in Priboj near Lopar, in which the Government of Serbia invested BAM 651,000, and assessed that it would give new dynamics to this local community.

During the visit of this hall with the Mayor of Lopare Rado Savić, the President Cvijanović was convinced that the works are developing well, and expressed satisfaction with one such project in this local community.

The President of the Republic of Srpska said that the production plant in the hall could employ up to 120 people, which would give a new dynamic to Lopare.

“There is a support of the republican authorities to all people at the local level who want to work for the benefit of their citizens and cooperate with the republican institutions, in order to reach each of our people and help all those in need”, said the President of the Republic.

The President of Srpska emphasized that she supports the initiatives in all local communities to provide housing that is cheap, affordable, for young married couples or young people who want to stay in their communities.

“I think it will be the best invitation to all of them to be able to get a roof over their heads, but also to build their future, to have their children there”, it was pointed out by the President of the Republic of Srpska.
