"Greenhouse investments" ulaže 100 mil EUR u tržište korporativnih obveznica i kupovinu banke u Srbi
Britanski investicioni fond "Greenhouse investments" planira da uskoro preuzme jednu srpsku banku, potvrđuje za "eKapiju" generalni direktor te kompanije Majkl O Liri Kolins.
Taj investicioni fond u poslove u Srbiji uložiće 100 mil EUR, a po preuzimanju banke planira da krene sa otkupom korporativnih obveznica od domaćih preduzeća.
"Greenhouse" je već registrovan u Srbiji, a početak investicije se očekuje u naredih dva meseca.
Do sada su samo tri domaća preduzeća izdala korporativne obveznice zbog komplikovanih procedura.
O Liri Kolins kaže da će predstojeći set izmena i dopuna Zakona o preuzimanju akcionarskih društava olakšati proces izdavanja obveznica, i da "Greenhouse" tu vidi šansu da investira.
- Imamo regionalnog iskustva. U Rumuniji smo investirali oko 200 mil EUR u projekte stanogradnje, dok operacije započinjemo paralelno sa Srbijom i u Bosni i Hercegovini - napominje O Liri Kolins.

Building permit valid for five years - Government considers amendments to Law on planning and constr
According to the draft amendments to the Law on planning and construction, each building permit will cease to be valid after five years if the use permit is not issued for the subject of construction. The amendments to the law, which will be on the agenda of the Government's session on Thursday, stipulate that the investor must pay the property tax upon expiration of that period even if the building is not finished, Blic daily paper learns from the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning.
People at the Ministry say that these amendments should contribute to completion of all buildings whose construction has been discontinued and their registration with Real Estate Registry.
- We want to avoid all those buildings that remain unfinished for years or even decades. They represent an eyesore and a danger to citizens. So far, there has not been a law on the basis of which such building would be torn down. This is one of the ways to overcome that. Besides, we also want to avoid those ugly situations when the investor takes money from buyers for apartments under construction and never have them finished or even sells the same apartment twice - Aleksandra Damnjanovic-Petrovic, the Assistant Minister of Environment and Spatial Planning, told Blic.
The draft amendments to the law also stipulate reduction of the fee for legalization of buildings by up to 99 percent.
- The volume of technical documentation that citizens must enclose with the legalization application has also been reduced. Besides, we have also expanded the list of proofs to be enclosed with the application, confirming successful resolving of the property relations - she said.
IFC interested in public-private partnerships in Serbia
Minister of Infrastructure Milutin Mrkonjic spoke yesterday with Gulrez Hoda, the Director of infrastructure and natural resources for Europe, Middle East and North America of the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank (WB).
Mrkonjic stated that the IFC delegation expressed its willingness to support infrastructure development in Serbia through implementation of the model of public-private partnership.
They are interested in ready projects, Mrkonjic explained and underlined that the subject of talks would be the construction of the Belgrade metro, bridges and the bypass around Belgrade.
The Minister said at the meeting that Serbia’s priority in road infrastructure was completion of Corridor 10, which should be done by the end of next year.
The second priority is construction of the motorway from Belgrade to Boljare on the Montenegrin border – Corridor 11, which will cost €2 billion, Mrkonjic added.
The third priority is construction of regional motorways from Belgrade to Vrsac, from Ruma to Sabac, from Paracin to Zajecar and from Pojate towards the Republic of Srpska.
He announced that all the projects would be completed within the next 10 years.
When it comes to rail transport, a priority is the construction of Corridor 10, with the electrified double-track railway lines for mixed traffic, on which trains will be able to move at the speed of at least 160 kilometers per hour. For that purpose, a total of €4.6 billion will be earmarked over next six years, Mrkonjic pointed out.
Mrkonjic explained that a priority would also be the modernization of Belgrade – Bar railroad, which should cost around €350 million, as well as the commencement of construction of the Belgrade metro within the next two years.
According to him, the Danube is also a priority and €350 million will be invested over next four years in equipping ports. Another important matter will be formation of a new national airline in strategic partnership with a successful company.
Hoda said that IFC was interested in cooperation with Serbia and that all possibilities and projects proposed would be taken in consideration in the following period.
As he explained, IFC deals with public-private partnership at global level and the main point here is that the risk is distributed equally between public and private sector and that the model is well-structured.
