BELGRADE – The pillars of the new government’s programme are “the economy and better living standards, full political stability, both in the country and in the region, reform of the judicial system, fighting corruption and crime, as well as better education and healthcare,” says Serbia’s Prime Minister-designate Aleksandar Vucic.

“Important years are ahead of us and economic growth will reach 2.3 percent this year. We will have the strength for that,” Vucic noted in an interview to the Diplomacy & Commerce magazine.

He said that the programme, which he has prepared, highlights the areas that require significant improvement to make Serbia a modern and organised country.

Asked how those objectives fit into the country’s broader agenda in terms of the EU integration process, Vucic responded that the Serbian government has no “parallel agendas”.

“There is only one existing agenda, with solid and precise goals to be achieved. This corresponds fully with our European path and the goals and standards we want to achieve. We want to have Serbia as a full-fledged member of the EU. More importantly, we want to ensure Serbian citizens live well and are decent citizens of Europe. This cannot be achieved if you either compromise on goals or change goals depending on the political agenda before and after the election campaign,” Vucic noted.

Asked about the new government’s priorities regarding improving the overall business climate in Serbia, Vucic said that “the main goals are supporting the development of entrepreneurship, decreasing the cost of fiscal and other levies for launching a business in Serbia, active employment measures, increasing the availability of financing sources and attracting major investors to come to Serbia in order to spur the industrialisation process in Serbia,” he said.

“On the World Bank’s Doing Business List 2016, Serbia moved up 32 places and we want to continue this trend. We will invest in the employment of highly educated workers, engineers and programmers, and we will work more on connecting foreign investors and the local economy through supply chains,” Vucic said.

  1. We have History repeating its self once again, if I understand correctly the vast majority of the votes from the Serbian population, have put their faith and the Future of their children, and the future of Serbia into the hands of a well trained/canine groomed Leader, our very own made in Serbia Mr. Vucic. Backed by the Best in the West, with the latest Hollywood well conceived Kosher style script, his honey coated speech lines promise Serbia of a awaiting marriage made in Heaven with the EU. They call it a New World Order Democracy “your ether with them or against them” a modern Love of convince to use and abuse the less fortunate as (a willing fair Slave Trade).
    With a voice and mannerism of a cute Boy next door, one would like to really believe he could be the one for Serbia! Finally a honest goal /agenda ? oriented, very polite tall gentleman, slow softly well spoken almost coming off a tad shy but not quite. And of course these days, one needs a good mouth with sensuous puckered lips like Mr Vucic’s to shine in front of the camera (eat your hearts out all you Serbian estrada ladies) and to complete the package, half a brain to deliver his brainwashing indoctrinated speeches to his clueless fans who still like to believe that there is a Free Lunch out there .
