After talking to workers, the minister of health said that their only request was not to lose their jobs and to proceed immediately with the second phase.
"Nobody will lose their job, everyone will continue to work on the phase B and on other phases," said Loncar, adding that workers from Serbia have been hired to work on the KCS reconstruction.
The minister said that it has been agreed with the contractor to install windows and doors by the winter, so that interior work can be done during that season. He recalled that the reconstruction of the Clinical Center Nis has been completed, and that reconstruction will soon begin at the Clinical Center Vojvodina and the Clinical Center Kragujevac.
"This is a new dimension of Serbia. We have promised that to the citizens of Serbia, to the people working in healthcare, to the patients, and we are achieving it. We will have four brand new clinical centers," stressed the minister.
According to the old Serbian custom, to mark the end of the rough construction phase lunch was organized for the workers, while they gifted a shirt to the minister.
