Serbian Minister of Construction, Transportation and Infrastructure Zorana Mihajlovic said on May 11 that the Serbian government's goal was that the state should break into the top five in the World Bank's Ease of Doing Business rankings.
"We have prepared an ambitious action plan for Serbia to improve its score, and the Serbian government will pass it as soon as possible. Our goal is to join the top five states in the next few years," Mihajlovic said at a meeting of a joint group tasked with improving Serbia's position in the Ease of Doing Business index.
Further steps to help Serbia rise in the World Bank rankings were discussed at the meeting, attended also by the Serbian finance and energy ministers, Sinisa Mali and Aleksandar Antic. One of the conclusions was that the reforms conducted so far, including electronic construction licensing, had been globally recognized already, Mihajlovic's ministry reported.
