How would you evaluate the current economic environment in Serbia? How much will the pandemic that we’ve gone through, as well as the fact that this is an election year, impact on our economy?

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the world economy, and thus Serbia’s, economy is being evaluated as significant, with some sectors sustaining greater losses compared to others, which will try to mitigate possible losses and evade an “out of business” scenario.

The Guarantee Scheme for supporting the economy that was adopted by the Republic of Serbia is assessed as being positive, introduced with the intention of providing some kind of “time out” for registered business. The economy curve is anticipated as W shaped, with a sharp incline following the establishing of control of Covid-19, followed by another decline. However, a second and stronger rise will come after all the consequences of Covid-19 are neutralised and the economy takes its “natural course”.
