Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic expects certain companies, among them Ikarbus, Lasta, BIP, FAM Krusevac and the Port of Novi Sad, to be privatized or to find a strategic partner soon.
– At the moment, we are working on solving the issue of Ikarbus, Lasta, BIP, FAM Krusevac, the Port of Novi Sad... These are some of the big names and I expect them to be privatized or to find a strategic partner soon so that they would not siphon money out of the budget anymore, but to once again contribute to Serbia's economic growth – Brnabic said at yesterday's presentation of the Foreign Investors Council's White Book in Belgrade.
She pointed out that the previous government had started resolving the issues of Zelezara Smederevo and Galenika, which used to be the driving engine of the development of Serbia and the region and which then became “a burden on Serbia's economy and budget”.
