Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic stated on Sunday that the minimum salary from January next year will be 35,025 dinars (some €298).

„We have made a decision to increase the minimum wage by 9.4 percent. That minimum will amount to 35,025 dinars. That’s about a 115 percent increase in nominal terms. Our inflation, as estimated, will be around 3.5 percent,“ Vucic said for B92 television.

He said that from January 1, pensions will increase by 5.5 percent.

„Along with that, there is an allowance of 20,000 dinars (some €200), and we will provide more help and support for pensioners,“ the president said.

According to him, salaries in the public sector will grow between seven and eight percent.

„All health workers, members of the army and workers in the social sector will have an increase of eight percent, and the rest about seven percent,“ said Vucic.

Vucic announced that the payment of 30 euros or 3,520 dinars for more than 5.7 million people will start on Monday, November 1.

„Pensioners and some other categories receive money directly on their account, and about four million who applied for that help will receive money on Tuesday and Wednesday,“ he said.
