Serbia has signed a memorandum of understanding with Italy's Leitner on a EUR 25mn public-private partnership project for building a gondola lift and other facilities in the mountainous ski resort of Kopaonik in central Serbia, the finance ministry said in a statement. The EUR 15mn gondola lift will connect the village of Brzece with Kopaonik. The project also includes the construction of a new chair lift, installation of artificial snow equipment and additional ski runs. This will be Serbia's first major public-private partnership in the field of tourism, finance minister Mladjan Dinkic was quoted as saying in the statement. He added that tourism in Serbia generates around USD 1bn worth of revenue annually. The Kopaonik centre has more than 50-km of ski runs for alpine skiing and 12-km runs for Nordic skiing. All ski runs are connected with a system of 24 chair lifts and the whole centre is equipped with artificial snow facilities.
