World Bank improves Serbia's 2021 GDP growth forecas

The Serbian economy is projected to rebound strongly in 2021, primarily due to investment and private consumption. Due to renewed fiscal support measures and a high increase in public investment, the deficit will decrease slightly, followed by more substantial reductions coming next year. Serbia is a dynamic, private sector-driven market economy. The government has already made steps in the right direction with structural reforms and fighting informality to facilitate doing business, ultimately generating higher fiscal revenues. Serbia’s long-standing ambition of joining the EU Single Market can be achieved through continued work on these efforts that lead to heightened economic growth rates. In 2020, Serbia ranked #44 in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business index (Sources: European Commission, IMF, and The Economist).
