Vujovic said at a press conference dedicated to the fourth revision of the three-year precautionary arrangement that at the end of the three-year programme Serbia concluded with the IMF in February 2015, stabilisation of public finances is expected.
Serbia will continue with the implementation of reforms, the Minister said and added that the visit of the delegation of this institution had a positive outcome.
Head of the IMF Mission James Roaf said that the performance under Serbia's economic programme has been strong – all quantitative performance targets for end-December were met, most by large margins.
At 3.7% of GDP, the fiscal deficit in 2015 was the lowest since 2008, and with confidence improving and interest rates declining, Serbia returned to positive growth, helped by a strong pick-up in foreign investment, he said.
The mission visited Belgrade on 18-26 February to initiate discussions on the fourth review under Serbia's precautionary stand-by arrangement with the IMF.
Due to the general elections we agreed with the authorities to continue the discussions with a follow-up visit once a new government has taken office, Roaf said.
