Our NATO Accession Is Not Anti-Russian

Membership of the EU and NATO is not directed against Russia or anyone else, but corresponds to the needs of society for enduring peace and stability, a wish to essentially and not only geographically belong to the world's most developed countries and cherish the values of Western civilisation. At the same time cooperation with Moscow and Beijing, especially economic cooperation, is the result of our efforts to develop our state and its infrastructure to make it accessible and attractive for new investment that will create new jobs – Duško Marković, Prime Minister of Montenegro

Our Relations Can Only Improve

Slovenia and Serbia are friendly countries that have a lot in common and are known to have varied and rich relations. I am confident that, after the next Serbian government is elected, we will further strengthen our economic cooperation to the benefit of our citizens

Hard Won Results Should Be Carefully Defended

It is crucial that the structural reform agenda is fully and expeditiously carried out, to transform Serbia into a modern, private-sector led economy with higher and sustainable growth

Government Must Maintain Good Work

Most of the previous economic programmes in Serbia succeeded in achieving short-term macroeconomic stabilisation, but failed to resolve the underlying weaknesses of the economy. I believe the authorities share our view that consolidating recent gains will require not only maintaining sound macro policies and strengthening institutions, but also fully completing the ambitious structural reform agenda

Milo Đukanović, Prime Minister Of Montenegro

We Are Committed To Our Future

The strong progress made by Montenegro since the restoration of independence in building democratic institutions and the modern economic environment – within the framework of EU and Euro-Atlantic integration – now obliges that the government takes on more ambitious goals: the creation of the preconditions for sustainable and dynamic economic growth and increasing employment

The Serbian Economy In 2016 And Beyond

In 2016 Serbia successfully completed its second year of fiscal consolidation, achieving a budget deficit of around two per cent of GDP and halting the growth of public debt that had been increasing continuously since the 2008 crisis

Focus On Competitive Advantages

There are many reasons why we have a factory in Subotica, one is because Subotica has always been a kind of incubator for industrial production of this kind

Reforms Have Begun – Toughest Yet to Come

Serbia made its last standby arrangement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in early 2015. With this programme our country committed to making significant progress in three important areas: (1) restoring the sustainability of public finances; (2) increasing the stability and resilience of the financial sector; and (3) implementing comprehensive structural reforms aimed at increasing employment and again achieving sustainable high economic growth.
