The President of the Republic of Srpska Željka Cvijanović, Mayor of the Brčko District Siniša Milić and His Eminence Bishop Fotije of Zvornik-Tuzla opened today the Cultural and Administrative Centre “Patriarch Pavle of Serbia” in Brčko settlement Srpska Varoš.
The President of the Republic of Srpska expressed the belief that the Cultural and Administrative Centre “Patriarch Pavle of Serbia” will play a universal role, since the dimension of the name it carries requires this role to be great.
The President Cvijanović expressed her satisfaction that she was able to attend the opening of a facility which, as she said, arose as a result of the joint work of the believers, the clergy, the institutions of the Brčko District and the Government of the Republic of Srpska, as well as businessmen and contractors.
“I am certain that the role of this centre will be great, spiritual, administrative and cultural. But I deeply believe that this role will be universal, that everyone will be able to identify with this centre, that it will be able to testify as it serves its purpose”, said the President of the Republic.
The President of the Republic of Srpska pointed out that she is proud that as the Prime Minister in the previous mandate last year she contributed in certain way to provide the funds needed for the completion of all works.
“We extracted these funds from the clearing and it amounted to about 500,000 BAM with certain interventions that existed in the previous period. It also represented a significant sum of funding from the total amount of around 1.8 million BAM”, said the President Cvijanović.
The President of Srpska pointed out that it is important that the people who gathered at the opening today recognised the importance and role of this centre.
His Eminence Bishop Fotije of Zvornik and Tuzla decorated the President of the Republic of Srpska Željka Cvijanović, BIH Presidency Chairman Milorad Dodik and Mayor of Brčko Siniša Milić with the Order of King Dragutin – Teoktist, for special merits for the construction of the Cultural and Administrative Centre “Patriarch Pavle of Serbia”.
