AstraZeneca vaccines arrive to Serbia

President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic welcomed a plane at the "Nikola Tesla" airport, which delivered to Serbia the vaccines made by "AstraZeneca" company. President Vucic pointed out that the 150,000 doses that arrived this morning meant that 150,000 more persons would be vaccinated in Serbia, and added that Serbia, along with the UAE, became the only country in the world that had more than three vaccine types available.

"People's health is the most precious of all and what we should invest in the most. Revaccination is due in 12 weeks, and we have a contract for new doses, so this means that 150,000 more persons will be vaccinated in Serbia. I am proud of Serbia, of the responsibility and seriousness we have shown in the fight for the health of our citizens, for the preservation of life and the progress of the economy in our country", President Vucic said.

The President expressed his gratitude to the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson, as well as to the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi.

"This took a lot of effort on the part of our country, but also on the part of our friends from the United Kingdom and India. I pleaded with Boris Johnson and some others in the UK Government. I would also like to thank both the Indian Prime Minister and Foreign Minister. I thank them for their willingness to hear us out, for the attention they paid to one small Serbia, and for the vaccines arriving in Serbia first", President Vucic said, adding that the price at which the vaccines were procured was absolutely the most favorable.

President Vucic said that Serbia, along with the United Arab Emirates, became the third country to have more than three vaccine types at its disposal, and pointed out that the "AstraZeneca" vaccines would be available to citizens from tomorrow.

UK Ambassador to Serbia Sian MacLeod said that she was proud that the "AstraZeneca" vaccine was developed at the University of Oxford, and that young scientists from Serbia also participated in its development.

"I am glad that the vaccine will be available around the world, which gives us hope in the fight against the coronavirus", the Ambassador said.

With today's delivery Serbia became one of the few countries in the world where citizens will be able to choose among four different vaccines against coronavirus - namely, the U.S.-German "Pfizer-BioNTech", Russian "Sputnik V", Chinese "Sinopharm" and the British-Swedish "AstraZeneca".

India important decades-old partner of Serbia

Prime Minister Ana Brnabic talked today with Ambassador of the Republic of India Subrata Bhattacharjee about bilateral relations between the two countries, the current epidemiological situation and the possibilities of importing vaccines produced and developed in this country.

Brnabic pointed out that India is a great friend and an important partner with a decades-long tradition of good mutual relations and cooperation.

The Prime Minister congratulated India on the successes in the development of vaccines so far and expressed confidence that those developed in this country will make a great contribution to overcoming the crisis caused by the pandemic and achieving the collective immunity of citizens.

The Ambassador pointed out that about 60% of vaccines intended for the world market will be produced in India, and that the export of the vaccine against the COVID-19 virus is planned soon.

Friendly countries, including Serbia, will also, if there is interest, be able to get this type of vaccine, Bhattacharjee specified.

The Prime Minister stated that Serbia wants to import as many vaccines from various manufacturers as possible, in order to provide its citizens with the best possible protection, and that there is interest in cooperation in this area with India.

The officials also discussed the continuation of the work of the Joint Committee for Economic Cooperation, as well as the economic cooperation of our countries.

Serbia is committed to stronger cooperation, primarily in the field of agriculture, since this branch of the economy plays an important role in our country.

President Vučić met via video link with representatives of the IMF delegation

21st April 2021

President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić talked today via a video link with the representatives of the delegation of the International Monetary Fund led by the Head of the Mission, Jan Kees Martijn. The interlocutors concluded that Serbia's main goal remains to preserve the hard-earned reputation of a fiscally secure country, as well as to continue with a responsible fiscal policy so that public debt does not exceed 60 per cent of GDP, whereby Serbia continues to work on further economic growth.

During the conversation, President Vučić and Jan Kees Martijn especially referred to the incentive measures and adopted three packages of measures to help the economy and citizens, which preserved macroeconomic stability and even achieved a higher employment rate. Martijn commended the responsible economic policy of Serbia and the successful crisis management during the pandemic.

"Serbia achieved one of the best results last year despite the challenges of the pandemic", Martijn said, noting that Serbia was one of the few countries to which the IMF did not adjust the initial projection of the 5% growth rate it gave last year.

President Vučić added that following the first quarter of 2021, Serbia is well on its way to achieving the planned growth of 6% as planned, since one of the main focuses of the Government is investing in large infrastructure projects and intensifying work on attracting foreign direct investments.

"In 2020, Serbia was at the very top in terms of economic growth in Europe, and I am convinced that this year we can enter the first three or four countries in terms of growth", said President Vučić, adding that he was satisfied that Serbia still, despite the pandemic situation, has an extremely strong inflow of investment.

President Vučić and Jan Kees Martijn also discussed a new advisory arrangement, which is of special importance in light of the improvement of the general investment climate in Serbia, as well as in the context of even greater investor assurance.

"Given Serbia's tremendous progress over the past eight years, the priority goal of this arrangement will be to preserve the results achieved, but also to provide support for further implementation of structural reforms aimed at even faster, stronger and more sustainable growth", said President Vučić and thanked the IMF and the personal engagement of Jan Kees Martijn in the professional and expert support that Serbia is counting on.

President Vučić pointed out that Serbia will pay special attention to reforms in public companies, and that priorities will continue to be investments in infrastructure, creating an even better climate for investments, greater investments in the environment, science and capital projects, which will further contribute to the long term stable financial growth in the coming years.

Meeting with the World Health Organization Regional Director for Europe

20th April 2021

President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić met today with the Regional Director of the World Health Organisation for Europe Hans Kluge, to discuss cooperation in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as cooperation in improving health care in our country and other joint activities.

President Vučić thanked Dr Kluge for his personal engagement and support during the current pandemic, especially for technical assistance and expertise. On this occasion, he informed the WHO official about the results of immunisation in Serbia and plans on how to provide the vaccine to all citizens who want to get it.

Dr Kluge congratulated President Vučić on his leadership and personal commitment to provide vaccines. He emphasised that Serbia, with its good immunisation strategy, ranked among the global leaders, thus becoming an example of humanity and solidarity by enabling vaccination of elderly people in rural areas, foreign citizens and donating vaccines to other countries.

"Serbia has accepted the vaccine as a life-saving product and has not looked at it geopolitically", said Dr Kluge.

The two interlocutors agreed that the world should increase production capacities for vaccines, as well as develop new adequate therapies for the fight against COVID-19, and, in this regard, work on increasing the level of citizens' trust in science.

President Vučić informed Dr Kluge about the plans for improving the work of the Institute for Virology, Vaccines and Sera "Torlak".

"We want to make 'Torlak' one of the best vaccine factories in Europe", said President Vučić.

WHO describes immunisation process in Serbia as impressive

19 April 2021

Prime Minister Ana Brnabic talked today with World Health Organisation (WHO) Regional Director for Europe Hans Kluge about the epidemiological situation and the course of immunisation of citizens in Serbia.

Brnabic expressed gratitude for the cooperation in the fight against the pandemic, technical assistance and expertise, emphasising that the support of this organisation is very important for our country.

She informed the WHO Regional Director for Europe about the course of immunisation of citizens in Serbia, expressing her belief that, thanks to the large number of vaccinated people, we will be able to create collective immunity and return to normal life.

Kluge assessed the immunisation process in Serbia as impressive, and added that Serbia has made a good decision to offer citizens all available vaccines used in the fight against coronavirus.

Expressing concern over the emergence of new strains of the virus, he stressed the need to speed up the immunisation process and show mutual solidarity.

The WHO Regional Director for Europe praised Serbia for the humanity it has shown by donating vaccines to the countries of the region and enabling vaccination for those who do not have a sufficient number of vaccines for their citizens.

The Prime Minister said that Serbia will continue to cooperate with the countries of the region and help in accordance with its capabilities.

When it comes to the project "Roadmap for Health in the Western Balkans 2021-2025", it was stated that, if epidemiological conditions allow, a regional meeting will be held in Belgrade at the end of the year, important for future improvement of cooperation between countries in the field of health challenges.
