Projects are presented by sectors (urbanism, education, traffic, housing, etc.), deadlines for implementation with a start and end period, total costs, status (ongoing projects, new projects) and project ranking determined in accordance with the criteria that was adopted by the City of Belgrade,“ Deputy Mayor of Belgrade has said, adding that the investments were divided into three categories, namely „small value“ from 100 to 500 thousand euros, „mid-range“ between 500 thousand and five million euros and „major“ that exceed five million euros.
