The President Cvijanović stressed that she was proud that, while she was the Prime Minister of the Republic of Srpska, together with the Government of Serbia and local authorities, she had made the decision to build “this wonderful bridge which serves to its purpose”, to save people from the floods which commonly occur at this place.

The President of the Republic emphasized that “the bridges connect but also save people in a way”.
“I wish for Čelinac, as well as all our other municipalities, to receive not only new bridges, schools, kindergartens, but all that is necessary for the better life of our citizens. Wherever we have achieved good cooperation between the local and republic authorities, and particularly where we have succeeded to implement projects together with Serbia, and I need to say that we were always moving forward together”, said the President Cvijanović, adding that Čelinac is also one of such municipalities.
“Numerous projects have remained behind us through our joint engagement, our care to provide and do what is needed for our people and our citizens, and finally for our Republic to look better and more beautiful, to be more modern, to be stronger every day and of course, it is always important that Serbia is with us on the path of strengthening ourselves and our capacities, improving our infrastructure, improving all segments of society”, it was stated by the President of the Republic of Srpska.

This bridge is our common success. There are a lot of projects all over Srpska where we had the support of Serbia”, it was highlighted by the President of Srpska.
