Prime Minister Ana Brnabić said that she is convinced that the money will be spent in the country and that that will also be a stimulus for the economy.
Brnabic added that the whole package of measures is aimed precisely at supporting the economy and preserving jobs, that the measures have begun to be implemented at the right time and thanks to the measures, the unemployment rate in Serbia is not high, unlike other countries.
“We believe, as both the IMF and the World Bank have said, that Serbia will record the highest economic growth in Europe this year, i.e. the lowest decline, followed by the highest positive growth in 2021,” concluded the Prime Minister.
