MUNICH - Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic on Friday met in Munich with leading financial investors from around the world to present the achievements of the Serbian economy.

Speaking to reporters after meetings within the framework of the Munich Security Conference, Vucic said he had insisted Serbia was a serious, responsible and progressive country whose economy was moving forward.

"Everyone could see what Serbia has done. You can only do that when you do not have major obstacles," Vucic noted.

A round table discussion with investors was held in keeping with Chatham House rules - behind closed doors.

Vucic said he had pointed out what Serbia was today and that the investors were satisfied with the country's economic progress, its declining public debt, lower jobless rate, rise of wages and pensions and infrastructure development.

All this indicates major progress, he said.

The progress is evident from Serbia's credit rating, which is reaffirmed also by the signing of a MoU with Euroclear and the inclusion of Serbia on the watchlist for the JP Morgan Emerging Markets Government Bond Index Global Diversified, he said.
