During their official meeting in China, Prime Minister Plenković and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang talked about the Pelješac Bridge and expressed their satisfaction with the ongoing construction works.

After his meeting with Prime Minister Plenković, Lu Shan, the chairman of China Road and Bridge Corporation, said to Croatian journalists that the project of the Pelješac Bridge was »very important for CRBC«.

»It’s quite a sophisticated bridge, both because of the pretty large span of the central arch and very strict European laws on environmental protection,« Mr. Lu Shan said. »We have to be very careful about all technical issues, especially environmental, so that we don’t breach European standards and disappoint people,« the chairman of China Road and Bridge Corporation said.
Accompanied by Mr. Lu Shan, Prime Minister Plenković toured the 36-kilometer long Hangzhou Bay bridge, the construction pride of our company.

»When we saw with our own eyes this exquisite feat of engineering and entrepreneurship carried out on the 36-kilometer bridge, we are confident that CRBC will be equally efficient and successful in the construction of the Pelješac Bridge,« Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said.
