NBS: Serbian FX reserves in March at EUR 10.2bn

NBS FX reserves stood at EUR 10.2bn at end-March, up by EUR 443.9 mn from end-February. This level of gross FX reserves covered 191% of money supply (M1) or more than five months’ worth of the country’s imports of goods and services (almost twice the level prescribed by the standard on the adequate level of coverage of imports of goods and services by FX reserves). The considerable increase in gross FX reserves in March mostly resulted from inflows from NBS activities in the domestic FX market, i.e. FX purchases amounting to EUR 405.0 mn, which further strengthened the resilience of the domestic financial system to potential shocks from the international environment.

World Bank projects growth of Serbian GDP of 3% in 2018

The growth of the gross domestic product (GDP) of Serbia will amount to 3% in 2018 and 3.5% in 2019, the World Bank announced today. The World Bank analysts pointed out at a press conference in Belgrade that, following the “disappointing” growth of Serbia's GDP in 2017 of 1.9%, the medium-term economic recovery will be down to a growth of consumption, not export. They project that Serbia's exports will be higher by 7% this year and that the growth of consumption will be incited by the raising of salaries in the public sector and pensions, but also by an employment increase.
