During his visit to Serbia on July 16, Romania’s president Klaus Iohannis said his country is interested in exporting electricity to Southeastern Europe’s markets, including Serbia. The exports could be made through specialized companies that operate on the two markets, he added after meeting his Serbian counterpart Tomislav Nikolić, Business Insider reported.
Romania and Serbia have several common economic projects, such as the Timișoara–Belgrade highway and energy interconnectivity. Last year, Romania’s Oltenia energy company (CE Oltenia) closed a deal with the Serbian authorities to export coal. The contract, which went through an intermediary firm, was suspended this year.
