“Since the beginning of intensification of the building of the highway, we have invested more than 1,2 billion KM. We are now interested to continue the construction on the principle of public-private partnerships. From our side, we have created a legal framework that allows a faster construction of the highway on Corridor 5C’’, said Prime Minister Nikšić.
