PKS: The European Commission recognized the economic progress of Serbia

The report of the European Commission for 2021 confirms that Serbia is constantly growing in the ranking of business conditions with international institutions, said today the advisor to the President of the Serbian Chamber of Commerce (SCC) Milun Trivunac.

At the presentation of the European Commission’s report on Serbia to representatives of the economy and business associations in the Serbian Chamber of Commerce, Trivunac said that it was “the result of easier issuance of building permits, property registration, simpler tax payment and protection of minority shareholders in companies.”

“Building a strong economy able to cope with competition in the single and large market of the European Union is an important dimension in the process of European integration. We expect further work on easier access to finance for small and medium enterprises, investment in renewable energy sources and energy efficiency, adjustment of education and training with the needs of the labor market, on which PKS is actively working as a proposer and participant in dual education, “said Trivunac.
According to him, the EU’s economic and investment plan for the Western Balkans, worth nine billion euros, will significantly accelerate the region’s long-term economic recovery in all sectors of the economy.

Trivunac added that “the special focus of the business community is on Cluster 2, which is crucial for Serbia’s preparation for the requirements of the EU internal market and is of great importance for the early integration and development of the common regional market.”

Within Cluster 2, four chapters have been opened: Freedom of Movement of Capital, Public Procurement, Intellectual Property and Financial Services.

Trivunac stated that “the important recommendation of the European Commission is that Serbia is ready to open all chapters within Cluster 3, which refers to inclusive growth and competitiveness, as well as Cluster 4, which concerns the Green Agenda, digitalization and sustainable connectivity.”

The Minister of European Integration, Jadranka Joksimović, and the Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Serbia, Emanuel Žofre, also attended the presentation of the European Commission’s report to businessmen.
