December 14 (SeeNews) - Chinese investors are interested in the construction of a 17 billion euro ($20.1 billion) canal connecting the Danube river to the Mediterranean through Serbia, Macedonia and Greece, German media reported.
The canal could be built in six years, linking the Danube via its tributary Morava in Serbia with the Vardar river in Macedonia, which flows into the Aegean Sea west of Thessaloniki, news agency DPA reported on Wednesday.
"Macedonia's president Gjorge Ivanov has given me a video showing this dream of the canal," DPA quoted the mayor of Thessaloniki, Giannis Boutaris, as saying following a visit to Skopje.
In February, Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras announced the potential construction of a canal which "could change the geography of the Balkans."
The distance from Morava's estuary, about 50 kilometres south of Belgrade, to the delta of Vardar is some 480 kilometres.
