Speaking at a public debate on the working version of the action plan for implementation of the National Anti-Corruption Strategy, Vucic explained that this plan envisages concrete measures and activities for the strategy’s implementation in the period from 2013 to 2018.
The First Deputy Prime Minister stated that the Serbian government will manage to create a legal state within next year, which will bring about new investments, legal safety and prosperity for citizens of Serbia.
He underlined that the National Anti-Corruption Strategy is the biggest test for the government of a country worn down by political corruption and that struggles to introduce zero tolerance for corruption and crime.
Vucic said that significant results have been made during the past year in the fight against corruption and reiterated that all 24 cases of suspicious privatisations from the list of the Anti-Corruption Council will be solved.
The First Deputy Prime Minister pointed out that Serbia opted for a systemic building of the legislative system and added that the Strategy, which is a middle-term document, must be implemented within the next five years.
Minister of Justice and Public Administration Nikola Selakovic noted that the action plan for the implementation of the National Anti-Corruption Strategy is a document that proves that a system for fighting corruption is being built in Serbia.
He added that the Strategy has set goals which have to be met within next five years, while the action plan gives clear instructions on how to meet these goals.
