NALED presents 35 measures for faster economic development

Members of NALED presented Prime Minister Ana Brnabić and the ministers of the Government of Serbia with 35 proposed measures to improve business conditions, which they consider a priority for expediting the country’s economic growth, developing the economy, attracting investments, achieving greater efficiency of public administration, creating new jobs and improving the living standard of citizens.

Representatives of NALED’s six associations and the BFC Club of Cities and Municipalities underlined that digitization of procedures in healthcare should be carried out during the new government’s term to facilitate citizens’ access to healthcare and other public services by creating a mobile e-Government application and a simpler application procedure on the state institutions’ web portals.

The development of primary waste selection is required so people can start separating waste per type in their own homes.

Also, farmers should be given more efficient incentives through the establishment of eAgrar, a new programme aimed at curbing the shadow economy. The legalization process should be completed and other unresolved property issues should be resolved, which would make it easier for cities and municipalities to attract investments.

The Chairman of NALED’s Managing Board, Vladislav Cvetković, presented the Prime Minister with a Charter on Joint Work with a list of 30 reforms that the Government implemented with the support of NALED, from 2017 to date. These include major system reforms such as the implementation of electronic building permits, e-Salter (e-Counter) for land registry entries, reform of flat taxation, seasonal employment, the introduction of online fiscalization, e-Invoices, e-Archive, abolition of seals, electronic public procurement, etc.

The priority measures proposed to the Government also include the further reduction of payroll tax and parafiscal levies, as well as the optimization of labour legislation, primarily through the regulation of flexible work and the extension of the seasonal employment reform to new activities.

There are also proposals for the improvement of energy efficiency, the introduction of the e-Prostor system and reducing paper documentation in the communication of the state, citizens and businesses, through the development of an electronic registry and e-Delivery.

The priorities are also air and water protection through changing the policy of compensation for polluters and boosting inspection and a better connection between private and state healthcare facilities. Also, NALED has proposed that the Government simplifies the process of donating food before it expires.
