BDP and Industrial Production on the Up

In the third quarter of 2016, the realistic growth of the Serbian gross domestic product (GDP) stood at 2.5%, according to a flash estimate of the National Statistical Office. A more detailed calculation of the GDP for the Q3 of 2016 will be released on 30th November, and this calculation is carried out at the lower aggregate levels using the deflation method.

According to the Serbian government’s forecast, the economic growth of our country in 2016 would be 2.7%, a jump from last year’s 0.8%.

In September 2016, industrial production in Serbia grew by 5.3% compared to the year ago, and by 6.5% compared to the 2015 average – the National Statistical Office has said. The biggest growth was recorded in power and gas supply and the HVAC sector (15.2%), processing industry (3,7%) and mining (0.4%).

A small favour

Since 2013, Serbian Monitor has been offering to its readers carefully selected news about the Republic of Serbia, as a daily commitment stemming from the genuine desire to offer undistorted information about a country that is too often a victim of prejudice and superficiality. From November 2016, this service is available in English and Italian with a growing number of original articles with a goal of providing a complete picture of this Balkan country's economy, politics, culture and society. Our archive is completely free of charge, available to anyone who wants to get to know the country, to study its specific aspects, or to be constantly updated about it. This project will only be able to continue with the help of readers on whom we are calling to provide a small financial support so that we can continue supplying an increasingly expanding pool of information and original contributions.
