BELGRADE - Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic on Monday held a meeting with an IMF delegation led by Mission head Jan Kess Martijn at which the organisation's representatives confirmed a stable GDP growth projection of 3.5 pct for 2019 and 4 pct for 2020.
Despite global challenges and slower growth in EU member states, Serbia's goal is to exceed the projected growth rates, Vucic noted.
Serbia's responsible policy and stable economic growth allow for further wage and pension increases, it was confirmed at the meeting.
Particular attention was devoted to more efficient governance and better implementation of investments at public enterprises, the presidential press office said in a statement.
Vucic and the IMF delegation also discussed enterprises of general interest, including public companies such as EPS and Resavica, privatisation of Komercijalna banka and Petrohemija, as well as a tax administration reform.
