The American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Serbia said on Friday that it is cautiously optimistic about economic prospects despite the continuing cornavirus pandemic.

“As in the past 20 years, our objective remains working with the government to launch initiatives and help shape strategies and policies that improve the regulatory framework for doing business, promote growth of the Serbian economy, and create jobs,| the President of the Board Zoran Petrovic told the AmCham general assembly.

A press release said that AmCham member companies feel that growth in 2021 will depend mainly on the government persevering in its pursuit of institutional reforms, such as continued improvement of the rule of law, judicial efficiency, and efforts to tackle corruption, make the public administration more efficient by allowing online communication with all authorities, and streamline tax, customs, foreign exchange operations, and healthcare procedures.

Addressing illicit trade online and strengthening environmental and labour laws will also remain major priorities for a better business environment, the press release said.
