Serbia’s government said on Thursday that it signed two agreements with Chinese companies that will enable new investments in the Serbian energy sector, with a total value of some 2.7 billion euro ($2.9 billion).

A 2.4 billion euro framework agreement was signed with China Energy International Group for the construction of a plant for processing of oil and oil derivatives in the northern city of Smederevo, the government said in a press release.

The new plant will produce oil derivatives in accordance with the highest technological, ecological and product quality standards of the EU. It will employ 700 people.
