Vucic: We expect to sell the airport for EUR 350 mln

Serbian PM Aleksandar Vucic says that he expects for the privatization of Nikola Tesla airport in Belgrade to bring at least 350 million EUR to the Serbian budget next year

„If we manage to get a 25 to 30-year-concession, the budget will get between 550 and 600 million EUR in revenue“, Vucic said at the official opening of Eurofiber’s factory in Cuprija.

He pointed out that this year’s budget wasn’t much about development but more about austerity, while the next year’s budget would be geared more towards development while also taking into consideration austerity measures. He added that we should not forget that Serbia was still implementing the IMF’s programme.

The PM also said that, in 2017, he expected Serbia to receive between 1.9 and 2.5 billion EUR in investments which would have a positive effect on the economy.

“Next year, our economic growth could reach 3.5% and if the average growth over the next five years amounts to 3.2%, we are going to be just like other European countries which economic growth could be between 1.1% and 1.2% providing that the European Central Bank does not intervene”, Vucic said.
