Prime Minister Ana Brnabic stated this on Friday in the Serbian National Assembly, presenting the bill to people's deputies.
Brnabic said that the budget was made so that the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development had the highest increase of RSD 21 billion, of which RSD 10.7 billion is allocated for salaries in education.
The budget for the next year is very well balanced and corresponds to all the foreseen priorities, she said, adding that investments in education and science have never been higher.
According to Brnabic, the budget is aimed at raising citizens' standards because it envisages an increase in salaries and pensions, as well as economic growth through a strong increase in investments.
