Government agrees to withdraw Law on Management of Public Enterprises

Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabić has said that the Serbian government, at the request of President Aleksandar Vučić, will withdraw the draft Law on the Management of Public Enterprises from the parliamentary discussion.

She added that there is a lot of misinformation and untruths about the law circulating around.

“There is no question of the sale of state-owned enterprises, like Srbijašume, Srbijavoda and national parks. That was never our intention. The opposition is spreading false news, I assume with the intention of creating more confusion,” said the Prime Minister.

She announced that the government will hold a session on Thursday where it will adopt the decision to withdraw the law from the public discussion in the National Parliament and ask the Parliament to return the draft law to the government.  

“We will withdraw the law so we can additionally consult the public, non-governmental organizations and expert organizations. We will organize public consultations again,” said the Prime Minister.

She added that she still thinks that the draft law is very good because, as it will “improve the management of all companies whose majority owner is the state”

“The goal of this law is better protection of national and strategic interests through appointing more professional management of public enterprises,” said Brnabić.

The new law stipulates that a total of 23 public companies, including several that manage national parks, will change their legal form in the following period and become a joint-stock company or a limited liability company.
