Healthcare, education and investments will be top priorities for the ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS), the President of Serbia and SNS leader Aleksandar Vucic said Saturday, marking the beginning of the campaign for the upcoming elections in Serbia, set to take place on June 21.

Speaking in an online conference, Vucic said Serbia managed to recover the hospitals across the country owing to the investments in the healthcare sector, which is why it was more prepared to face the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

“What we need is investing more in the healthcare system. We wish we never again experience a situation that we were in the past,” said Vucic, adding that the country will try to attract direct foreign investors but that the state will be the largest investor of all.

According to several relevant sources, he said, Serbia would feel the upcoming economic crisis the least and, according to his own assessments, the country will end the year having higher GDP:

“People say we cannot attract investors because we don’t have a coast. Do Switzerland or Austria have one? What matters the most is how much you work. It is all up to us. We have the most beautiful country in the world and we have to work now, work hard and believe in ourselves,” said Vucic.

He also assessed that the nations who are small but work hard outrun those who got settled, and that Serbia is one of those countries that makes progress and grows bigger.
