Increasing economic growth and employment calls for making more efforts to improve the investment climate, this independent state body that reports to the National Assembly said.

Low economic growth, large fiscal deficit and fast-growing public debt and high unemployment are the biggest problems facing the Serbian economy, although certain improvements could be observed with these indicators in 2015, the Fiscal Council said in a document on economic recovery, employment and fiscal consolidation, obtained by Tanjug.

Despite pointing out that economic recovery started last year, following the recession of 2014, the Council said economic growth would continue being low for a few more years as it would take several years to rectify the existing structural problems and increase the investment-to-GDP ratio.
