Podgorica – President of Belfairs management PhD Abdulah Alanizi said yesterday for “Vijesti” that he hopes that the Government of Montenegro will take a good look at the offers which were submitted at the open competition for Meljine, and that they will choose what is in the best interest of the state and the citizens.
Alanizi, who attended the opening of the offers said that Belfairs applied at the open competition for Meljine in order to deal with health and in order for it to bring in Montenegro a technology which it doesn’t have now, such as a modern diagnostic center with MR, top gear and devices for cardio surgery and many other things.
– The Government should seriously consider what is in its best interest. A small place like Kraljevo cannot compete with our empire. Atlas group can’t be our competitor. Belfairs owns about 20 modern hospitals all around the world and they have a year turnover of about 120 millions of euros, and they employ about 6.500 workers, and let’s not talk about other work which we do such as airplane industry and similar things. Personally I think that the bid of Atlas group of 120 millions for investments is a joke. Also, I think that their consortium which has submitted the offer doesn’t have the turnover of 50 millions of euros in the last three years in health. Simply, I don’t believe that they have fulfilled the open competition conditions – pointed out Alanizi. He added that it will especially interesting to see what guarantees the bidders are offering for what they are announcing.
Alanizi says that Belfairs is in health business for almost 20 years on high world level and that few of them in the world can compete with them in that field, and let alone someone from the region.
– Montenegro needs someone like us. You need a modern hospital complex, which will provide what only the most modern hospitals in the world can provide. People then would not haveto go abroad to be treated – said Alanizi, and added that Montenegro with them as partners would be listed in the world medicine map. In company of Alanizi at the opening of the offers as an interpreter was Zoran Damjanovic, director of the company Jugoimport.
Alanizi is a doctor of surgery and medical management and professor at the Faculty in Leeds.
Beside the business with the hospitals Alanizi has an airline company Trans Atlantic aviation which owns 18 “boing 767” planes, and two “boing 747” planes.
– Our offer for Meljine is based on the fact that we will be working in medicine and not in real estate business. We believe in legislative system of Montenegro and that the commission will do their job fair and objectively and that they will protect the interest of citizens – concluded Alanizi.
