ZORANA MIHAJLOVIC: WE WILL BUILD FLATS FOR 110 ROMA FAMILIES
Serbian Deputy Prime Minister Zorana Mihajlovic and Nis City Mayor Darko Bulatovic signed the Protocol on Cooperation between the Coordination Body for Monitoring the Implementation of the Strategy for Social Inclusion of Roma in Serbia for the period 2016-2025 and the City of Nis to monitor the implementation of the project of relocation of residents of the Red Star settlement in order to provide them with adequate housing conditions. “The protocol we signed today is very important because we are solving the housing issue for 110 Roma families. We have been working on this project for two years and I would like to thank the City of Nis for working together, because without full involvement of local communities there is no discussion that we can achieve the Roma community’s involvement “said Mihajlovic. Nis City Mayor Darko Bulatovic pointed out that the promotion of good governance and empowerment of the Roma community were common goals of the City of Nis and the Government of Serbia. The protocol that was signed today was a logical continuation of good joint work with the Serbian government with the aim of reducing the poverty of Roma, full participation in the community, as well as creating conditions for a higher standard and better living conditions, “Bulatovic said.
