10:04:03 Soundbite by Johannes Hahn (in ENGLISH): One core element of this strategy is of course is navigability, transport, traffic. And this bridge which is an essential one because for the moment there is definitely what concerns crossing the river a bottleneck 00:00:19
10:04:22 Soundbite by Johannes Hahn (in ENGLISH): May I say it is besides the construction as such a very emblematic project because building bridges is always very symbolic because we connect people with the help of bridges and to connect people, to create a better understanding is something essential for a peaceful society and that is why I think that building a bridge and co-financing this construction is also a contribution signal from the EU of how important Serbia will be, could be, in the future as a part of the European family and I hope this is one very important step forward to this kind of future membership to the EU. 00:00:50

10:07:23 Soundbite by Johannes Hahn (in ENGLISH): Danube strategy is horizontal strategy, it is not linked to one policy area it is an horizontal one which affects more or less every element of our life, of our people but again it is important to understand that the strategy and the aim of the strategy to implement projects which must to be implemented by the different Member States more or less at the same time in order to generate indeed this added value that we have talked about and we believe in it. 00:00:46
