Serbian Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications Minister Tatjana Matic said on Tuesday that the country’s tourism industry has suffered damages of about one billion Euro.

Speaking at the online conference Winter 2020/2021: Destinations in the Region Preparing for the Season, she recalled that the government introduced four sets of economic measures since the coronavirus pandemic broke out. The conference was organized by Color Media Communications.  

“Aid was provided separately for the hotel industry as well as travel agencies which got aid in the form of favorable loans and turnover funds from the Development Fund,” Matic said.
