TRIESTE – In this calendar year, Serbia will receive World Bank (WB) funds for projects aimed at enhancing early childhood development and activities in states of emergency, WB Regional Vice President Cyril Miller announced in Trieste on Wednesday.

Meeting with a Serbian delegation headed by PM Ana Brnabić, Miller said Serbia’s efforts aimed at financial stabilisation had started to pay off.

The focus should be on the public sector reform to make the private sector an engine of Serbia’s development, he said.

Brnabić briefed WB officials on the country’s economic progress, such as financial stability, good economic prospects and the implemented first part of the public administration reform.

There will be more tough steps – that is why it is important to continue reforms to ensure stability, speed up GDP growth and reduce unemployment, she said.
