NALED presented 35 measures for faster economic development to Prime Minister Brnabić

NALED members met today with the Prime Minister Ana Brnabić and the ministers of the Government of Serbia, and presented the proposals for 35 measures to improve business conditions, which they consider a priority for accelerating economic growth, developing the economy and attracting investments, achieving greater efficiency of public administration, creating jobs and better standards of citizens.

Representatives of NALED's six theme alliances and the BFC Club of Cities and Municipalities emphasized that the new government's mandate should include digitization of procedures in healthcare so as to ease citizens' access to health services, facilitation of access to other public services by creating a mobile eGovernment application and a simpler registration procedure for the web portals of institutions.

With the development of primary selection, citizens should also be able to separate special types of waste in households. Also, farmers should be provided with more efficient incentives through the establishment of eAgrar, a new program for countering shadow economy should be adopted, the legalization process should be completed and other open issues in the field of property should be resolved, which would make it easier for cities and municipalities to attract investments.

The Prime Minister of Serbia Ana Brnabić pointed out that many reforms, which have been implemented and are ongoing, would not have been successful without the support and initiative of NALED.

- I am glad that we will continue working together in the new term. Some of the priority areas we will work on are land conversion, legalization, justice, new e-government services, digitalization of economy, artificial intelligence and education. Today's meeting is an opportunity to look together at these areas, which have major potential for further reforms that will contribute to the continuous growth of our country's economy in these challenging times - said Brnabić.

The President of the NALED Managing Board Vladislav Cvetković presented the Prime Minister with a Charter on Joint Work with a list of 30 reforms the Government implemented with the support of NALED, from her first mandate in 2017 until now. Among them are major systemic reforms such as the introduction of electronic construction permits, eCounter for real estate registration in the cadastre, reform of flat rate taxation, seasonal employment, introduction of online fiscalization and eInvoices, eArchiving, abolition of seals, electronic public procurement, etc.

- We continue to work for Serbia, and I would like to highlight three large programs worth 15 million euros that we launched with member companies and the international community. These are StarTech program that supports the digital transformation of the economy and innovation, the National cashless payments initiative, supporting the development of a new Program for countering shadow economy and the free introduction of cashless payments at 25,000 locations, and the program for environment protection and installation of infrastructure for the collection of glass and other packaging waste, batteries and light bulbs, and food waste - said Cvetković.

The priority measures proposed to the Government, among others, include the further reduction of the tax burden on wages, solving the issue of parafiscal charges, as well as the optimization of labor legislation, primarily through regulation of flexible work and the extension of the seasonal employment reform to new activities. There are also proposals for the improvement of energy efficiency, the introduction of the eSpace system, the reduction of paper documents in communication between the state, citizens and businesses, through the development of an electronic registry and eDelivery.

Priorities also include air and water protection through changes to the policy of fees paid by polluters and strengthening inspection supervision, greater connection between private and state healthcare and simplification of the procedure for putting new drugs on the market, while another proposal is to simplify the donation of food before the expiration date.
