BELGRADE - Serbian PM Ana Brnabic and IMF Mission head Jan Kess Martijn on Thursday discussed the implementation and the effects of an advisory programme Serbia has with the IMF - reforms of the tax administration, the salary system and public enterprises.
They also talked about adoption of fiscal rules, including a pension indexation formula, and continued implementation of structural reforms.
Brnabic told Martijn Serbia retained a 3.5 pct GDP growth projection for this year.
She said the Serbian construction industry had been the highest-growing sector in the first months of this year and noted a new cycle of investments in infrastructure projects would be worth over 8 bln euros.
Martijn praised Serbia's excellent results in terms of attracting FDI, which totalled 1.2 bln euros in the first four months of the year.
He noted more fiscal room must be created for investments from the domestic business sector, which he said would significantly boost GDP growth and strengthen the private sector.
