In the first seven months of 2020 and despite the COVID-19 contagion, a total of EUR 1.61 billion of foreign direct investments were made in Serbia, according to Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.
He pointed out that it was more than 60% of the total foreign investments in the whole Western Balkans. Of that amount, the majority, that is 67.4%, came from the EU Member States, mostly from Germany, Vucic added.

He also said that, despite the difficult situation, he had good news regarding the economy – according to the initial flash estimates, Serbia recorded a 0.1% growth in the third quarter. He pointed out that, in the same period, for comparison, Macedonia’s growth fell by 12.7%.
“There’s no doubt that we will be among the first two countries, if not the first in Europe when it comes to economic growth,” Vucic added.
