In 2022, most of the most important economic branches in Serbia reduced both production and export, and this trend continued this year as well. The most worrisome is the increasingly noticeable decline in domestic private investments, which in 2022 were reduced to around seven percent of GDP.
“The most responsible for this is the state policy, which is constantly (directed) at foreign investors, causing long-term damage to the most competitive part of the Serbian economy,” states the Business Top 2022/23 edition.
The annual edition of Business Top publishes a ranking list of the 150 largest companies in Serbia in 2022, according to realized profit and business income, as well as a ranking list by district according to realized profit and business income, based on data from the Agency for Economic Registers (APR).
In the edition of Business Top 2022/23, the most up-to-date analyzes of the operations of 16 leading sectors in Serbia were published, measured by their participation in the gross domestic product (GDP) of Serbia, as well as based on the impact they have on the overall results of the domestic economy.
The operations of large companies had the greatest impact on the results of the entire economy, and how concentrated the domestic market is, the data show that only one hundred companies generated almost 30 percent of the total business income, more than two fifths of the total profit and over half of the total loss.
