Serbian Finance Minister Sinisa Mali announced on May 25 that the government would adopt a new program of cooperation with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in June.
"Next week we will adopt the program and in June the IMF's Board of Directors. Let it be noted that we are not asking for a single dinar from them because this instrument has an advisory character," Mali said at the Kopaonik Business Forum which is being held in Belgrade due to the pandemic.
He explained that cooperation with the IMF was continuing because Serbia needed credibility and "because we need the IMF's support." "We want to move forward and, with their help, additionally continue and develop the reforms that we have already launched," Mali stressed.
