"It took a lot of effort and work for these people to invest 7.5 million euro ($8.4 million), to show their desire to improve their business, to employ more than 700 workers in Becej," Vucic said on Wednesday during the official ceremony for the opening of the unit, according to a press release issued by the president's office.
