A new trick for attracting investors: No more state incentives
Minister of Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications Rasim Ljajic has stated today that state no longer provides direct incentives to investors in Serbia, but reconstructs abandoned plants’ halls to that they are operational, which, as he has evaluated, suits investors.
“Now our usual practice is not to give direct incentives, nor are investors interested in them. Instead, state reconstructs those halls and makes them operational. From our point of view this is good and useful, and it is suitable for investors as well,”Ljajic has stated with “Prva” TV station.
He has said that two companies are coming to Serbia today, which representatives will visit towns and municipalities in Serbia and check abandoned plants’ hall, adding that state will introduce this model of incentives and attraction of Turkish investors.
Ljajic has said that by the end of the year, and no later than the end January, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic will formally open a plat in Priboj, which is already operational.
He has also said that there are ongoing works on reconstruction of the hall in Mali Zvornik, because of a textile plant that will employ about 300 workers.
