Never has there been more money for capital investments
Prime Minister Ana Brnabic has said that the planned allocations for capital investments from next year’s budget are almost RSD 486 billion.
Stating that the proposed budget is developmental, the Prime Minister noted that “there has never been more money allocated for capital investments”.
“Those investments will enable faster growth and higher salaries and pensions. We will certainly end this year with a growth of more than seven percent, and citizens can expect additional growth as a result of the implementation of this budget if we get support in the parliament,” the prime minister told Prva TV before the parliamentary session on Tuesday, whose agenda includes budget proposal.
She announced that next year, salaries would be increased between seven and eight percent, and pensions by 5.5 percent.
“We are increasing the minimum wage by 9.4 percent, and from 156 euros, which was the minimum wage when we started the fiscal consolidation, it will now exceed 300 euros,” said the Prime Minister of Serbia.
She added that in the previous 12 months, 60,000 new jobs were created in Serbia, and that during the coronavirus pandemic, the state gave more than eight billion euros to citizens and businesses through three support packages.
