The Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Goran Vesic said: "One of the Ministry's priorities is investing in rivers, primarily the Danube and Sava, but also the Tisza, since the rivers have been neglected for a long time. We build docks, because rivers are important to us. For Novi Sad, which lies on the Danube, the development of river traffic is particularly important. This investment in Luka is important. We are grateful to the company DP World Novi Sad for the investment, they will have our support if they want to continue investing, that together, the Republic, the Province and the City of Novi Sad make every place in Serbia a better place to live. DP World has an obligation to invest 30 million euros in port infrastructure, so far the company has already invested 15 million, because they recognized that the Serbia has a vision to develop Novi Sad, a city that will be connected to other parts of the country with three highways. What is happening is just an additional stone in the mosaic that turns Novi Sad into a real 'hub' when it comes to the traffic of goods and passengers," said Minister Vesić.

The mayor of Novi Sad, Milan Đurić, said: "I am very proud that today we are witnessing the realization of their plans and attending the ceremonial commissioning, bearing in mind that this project has made it possible for ships to dock directly at the level of the quay. This is a big capital investment in our city, in our country, which will greatly improve our economic capacities and enable easier transportation of goods from Novi Sad to all destinations. This corridor has become important for the economy and tourism, which is contributed by the good position of Novi Sad and this strong agricultural region", said Đurić.
