In the first nine months, Serbia had EUR 1.9 billion of foreign direct investments, said Serbian Finance Minister Sinisa Mali and added that capital investments contributed to the growth of Serbia's GDP and investors' decision to invest in the country, the Ministry of Finance announced.
He said that there would be more money in the 2021 budget, primarily for capital investments.
– We will invest in sewer systems, waterworks, waste water treatment facilities, rehabilitation and construction of railways and roads. Such public investments not only influence the growth of the GDP, but also employ construction companies and everyone else in that chain. At the same time, they motivate private investments – Mali said on TV Pink.
Talking about the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation (DFC), he said that he expected concrete propositions to be put before the citizens and commercial banks, that is, an offer of very favorable credits with a longer repayment period, primarily for micro, small and medium enterprises, so that they would continue investing in the development of business operations.
