Appearing on Euronews, she said that Serbia is not thinking about introducing mandatory vaccination, but bringing presenting to the citizens the importance of vaccination.
Speaking about the freezing of the prices of certain products, the Prime Minister said that it was done because there is a huge unpredictability which is caused primarily by the rise in energy prices.
We have the highest cumulative growth rate for 2020 and 2021, and I am sure we will have it next year as well, but that does not mean that we are rich and that people in Serbia live well. However, they live better than before, she said.
According to her, inflation was stable and low, and the minimum wage rose dramatically, but a salary of 300 euros is still not a salary with which people can live well.
We have done two things, the prices of electricity are quite stable, as well as the price of gas, which is stable and the lowest in Europe, said Brnabic and pointed out that the state will not intervene beyond any need on the free market, but wants to preserve stability for those who are most at risk.
We can see continuous growth in salaries and pensions, but we still have poor people who we have to take care of, the Prime Minister pointed out.
She reiterated that she was behind the Bill on Expropriation. I think it is important, my government adopted the law and defended it in the National Assembly, I would advise the President of Serbia to sign it, she said and pointed out that the law has to do with infrastructure projects that are several years late and very important.
Brnabic pointed out that there was a public insight and that everyone could submit comments, that some did, some were accepted, some not, noting that it is not true that the law was passed because of Rio Tinto.
This law is a step forward in what we had before. The owners of the illegal facilities could not get compensation, and now they can. The deadlines have been shortened, in order to speed up the projects, the Prime Minister explained.
