The oil company “Lukoil” has invested about 250 MEUR for 10 years of doing business in Serbia, and for a year or two it could significantly increase investments in Serbia, said the company’s vice president Vadim Vorebljov.
– Investment of “Lukoil” in Serbia currently remains at the current level, but in the short run for a year or two, we have to bring concrete solutions. If we make decisions to expand investments in the Serbian market, it will mean a significantly higher amount of investments – said Vorebljov.
