“As Chairman of a Serbian Government’s Commission for Coordination of a Process of Permanent Integration of Refugees, and President of a Steering Board, we have had a privilege, over a past year, to be frequently directly concerned in opposite events imprinting a swell in a doing of a Regional Housing Programme. It is an honour and pleasure to be partial of a plan that truly changes a life of people, though it is also a shortcoming to accommodate a expectations of all who have been vital as refugees in formidable conditions for some-more than 20 years.
Our joining to this attempt is reflected in a power of a activity on a ground. we can say, but any exaggeration, that whole Serbia is a large construction site. A sum of 1,207 housing solutions have been reached so far, out of that 628 in a form of construction element packages, and 479 houses.
The past year saw a doing of a new resolution in a form of unit buildings. The construction of 235 apartments, that began in Ovca, final year, to a value of 9.8 million euro, is already entrance to an end. This spring, we non-stop a construction site underneath Subproject 2, in 5 towns. Most of these sites are surpassing really good indeed, and it is a expectancy that, if all unfolds as scheduled, a beneficiaries will be means to pierce in, subsequent spring.
Subproject 4 is valued during 13 million euro, consisting of 661 housing units: 30 prefabricated houses, 261 housing units, 300 construction element packages and 129 encampment houses. Under a benefaction Subproject, buildings with mixed housing units will be erected in 13 internal self-government units. Construction sites were non-stop in 9 municipalities, in serve to a benefaction one in Golubinci, including Zrenjanin, Brus, Bor, Arilje, Negotin, Temerin, Kladovo and Loznica. The construction works during these locations are approaching to finish by subsequent summer.
The construction of 30 apartments for refugees from Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Croatia, started here, in Golubinci. The apartments will be rentable, and after a six-month occupancy, accessible for squeeze as well, during subsidized rates, as per a Law on Refugees.
The construction of 270 new apartments in a Kamendin area, Zemun, is approaching to start in early November. This will yield a new movement to a Regional Housing Programme in Serbia.
It is a dignified shortcoming to be benevolent and not to spin a blind eye to assistance for those uprooted from their home regions; however, this shortcoming should be common by other states participating in a Programme, but exception. We can be successful in a attempts usually by respecting a interests of all, and holding corner action. we am essentially referring to a need for full honour of acquired rights by Croatia.
Rare are a projects such as a Regional Housing Programme which, we believe, will be globally famous as an instance of good practices in addressing superb issues and informal cooperation. It is therefore critical to safeguard a unfettered operation.
In conclusion, we would like to appreciate all those who have contributed, with their determined efforts and belief, to a success of a Programme, including inhabitant and general partners, donors, friends and media that have famous a importance. we serve wish to appreciate a beneficiaries for not losing wish to demeanour brazen to improved and safer days that distortion ahead.
I am unapproachable of all beneficiaries, and participants in a doing of a Regional Housing Programme, assured that we will shortly accommodate again on another identical occasion.
