Vucic: Srbijagas is the only objection from IMF

The only objection Serbia has received from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) concerns Srbijagas, i.e. Serbia’s state owned natural gas enterprise.

Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said this Thursday, adding that he was confident that Serbia would pass all IMF reviews.

“We have tackled all other objections, and we will pass all reviews, which is what the citizens expect and what is very important for them,” Vucic said at “The Economist: The World in 2017” conference, held at the Serbian National Assembly in Belgrade.

Vucic also said that his goal is to “continue reducing the budget deficit – which is possible when your finances are in order and you have a disciplined government.”

The prime minister added it was “possible” that there would be no deficit in this year’s budget, “despite the fact we’ve never spent more this December than any other December.”

“The situation in the world in political and economic terms is complicated and complex, while the situation in Serbia is complicated due to the situation in the region, but with better prospects than on the global scene,” he said.

“Serbia will also monitor with great attention the economic policies of the Russian Federation, as well as economic developments in China, given the impact of the Chinese economy on the global economic trends,” Vucic said.
