Serbia is today a country with regulated public finances, which has enabled it to launch and finance an ambitious new cycle of infrastructure works, to work on connecting Serbia with the region and the EU, and thus also strengthening the competitiveness of our economy. That’s a job that will continue in 2018.
Serbia this year entered the world’s top 10 countries for the issuance of electronic building permits, leaving some of the world’s most developed countries in our wake. And we have to preserve this achievement
The European Commission decided this March to adopt a tenth freight corridor, entitled the ’Alpine-Western Balkan Corridor’, which represents a great success for Serbia, as the only non-EU state to be traversed by one of a total of 10 rail freight corridors. It is also an example of the positive evaluating of the policy of the Serbian government and the Ministry to connect Serbia to key European transport routes.
We have shown that we are ready to tackle the most challenging issues such as the reform of public enterprises, building roads and improving railway services. Cooperation with the private sector allows us to test our decisions in practice
I believe the new government will bring new energy and continue to implement reforms at an equally strong pace. My team and I will invest all the necessary energy, work and knowhow to connect Serbia with the region and the world. Another of our goals is for Serbia to enter the club of the world’s top 20 countries in terms of conditions for doing business
