The president of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) of the United States, Jelena McWilliams says that it is necessary for Serbia to develop and implement reforms for its own sake, because it needs them. According to the Srpski Telegraf daily, McWilliams came to Belgrade to help implement a $10 billion global plan for the Balkans.
“As a representative of the United States and of Serbian origin, I am interested in seeing progress here; I want my country to develop. That is why it should carry out reforms for its own good. And, whether the EU wants it or not, it should be irrelevant”, McWilliams added.
McWilliams, who came to Belgrade at the invitation of the Serbian Deposit Insurance Agency, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary, says it wants to show that America supports what the agency does because it is important to protect people.

McWilliams, who was born Jelena Obrenic, a Trump confidante, will prepare the ground for new US investments during her stay in Serbia. “Jelena is a charismatic politician who works in finance in the vast US administration. She has worked in many positions throughout her enviable career thanks to hard work and dedication, so Trump recognized this and suggested her for this position in 2018,” a source said.
McWilliams is one of the key people in the economic package and she has the advantage of being rooted in our area and understanding the problems of the Serbian people.
In addition to McWilliams, Trump has also appointed New Yorker John Jovanovic to forge strong ties with Serbia, the newspaper said, adding that he holds a high position in the Mercuria Energy Group, with $ 104 billion in annual revenue.
