DAVOS - Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said Tuesday after meetings and panels at the Davos World Economic Forum that there had been no objections concerning the Serbian economy, but only praise.

As opposed to a political panel on the Western Balkans, where objections were made over Serbia's purchases of defensive weapons, everyone congratulated Serbia at an economic panel on generating growth in central and eastern Europe, he said.

He said Serbia's economic progress had been praised by World Bank and European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) representatives and that EBRD President Suma Chakrabarti himself had said 2019 had been a record year for Serbia and that the country had spent over 500 mln euros on projects.

"They had no objections whatsoever as far as the economy is concerned," he said, adding that he had addressed the significance of a transition from the educational level to the work level in Serbia.

That is the key problem for us, he said, noting that it was important to get as many young people as possible involved in a dual education system in order to keep them in the country.
