BELGRADE - Serbian Deputy PM and Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Zorana Mihajlovic on Monday met with a World Bank delegation to discuss improvement of the business climate in Serbia and its competitiveness, strengthening of the financial market and a new growth agenda, as well as the transport sector and implementation of reforms significant for conditions for doing business in Serbia.

According to an official statement, she said 2019 and 2020 were greatly significant for the Serbian economy and that much had been done concerning the business climate but that much work was still ahead.

"We have conducted good reforms, in particular in terms of building permits and the cadastre, but that is not sufficient. We are an open economy and new investments, as well as better connectivity with the region, are exceptionally significant for us, she said.

"We are launching a new investment cycle and projects worth over 10 bln euros; it is important to have a competitive business environment and your support in this is important to us," she told the delegation, led by the head of the World Bank Belgrade office Stephen Ndegwa and Alfonso Garcia Mora, global director of the finance, competitiveness and innovation global practice.
