BELGRADE (Serbia), December 5 (SeeNews) - Serbia's blue-chip civil engineering company Energoprojekt [BEL:ENHL] said its subsidiary Visokogradnja has won a 28.3 million euro ($33.5 million) contract for construction of a Chinese cultural centre in Belgrade.

The contract was signed with the investor in the project, Belgrade-based company Empiret, a subsidiary of Chinese construction company Shandong International Economic & Technical Cooperation Group (CSI), Energoprojekt said in a filing with the Belgrade Stock Exchange last week.

The construction works awarded to Visokogradnja will have to be completed within 420 days.

Serbia's culture ministry signed in October 2016 a contract for the construction of the Chinese Cultural Centre with China's Shandong provincial government. The centre will have a floor area of 6,000 square metres and will feature four separate zones - a cultural centre, embassy apartments, a business reception area and office space.

The Chinese Cultural Centre will be built on the site of the former Chinese embassy in Belgrade, destroyed during the NATO bombing of Serbia in 1999.
