Serbia has readily faced the global crisis with low public debt, high foreign currency reserves and the budget surplus, giving the Government possibility to allocate 5.1 billion Euro economic package, or 11 percent of the GDP, which not many countries managed to, Sinisa Mali, the country’s Finance Minister has said on Wednesday, the FoNet news agency reports.

In his meeting with the French ambassador to Serbia Jean-Louis Falconi, Mali was quoted as saying that Serbia “opened the economy at the right time”, and not a single foreign investor gave up its business in the country.

According to the Finance Ministry statement, Falconi said that French companies operating in Serbia praised the Government’s economic measures and that none of them had pulled away.

One of the topics in the meeting was the construction of an underground in Belgrade since an agreement envisaged that the French ‘Egis’ company would finance a feasibility study for the project.
