The Serbian economy currently pays for electricity at the level of the economies of the European Union, and the production price of electricity in Serbia is four times lower, which is evidenced by the significant increase in EPS profits in the first six months of 2023, said the president of the Serbian Business Club Privrednik , Zoran Drakulic.
At the Club’s traditional reception, he pointed out that “with all the increases, we will end this year with inflation over 8 percent, and that Serbia, with its natural resources, can be a great leader in the region.”
He also referred to the banks and the fees they charge citizens.
The first topic is highlighting the one-year moratorium that the NBS made with the banking sector, and the behavior of domestic banks and the increase in their profits, which does not bypass even the poorest citizens of this country. Since the end of the moratorium, some domestic banks have been charging 39 to 40% overdraft charges on citizens’ current accounts, which is unacceptable and a big blow to the budget of the poorest citizens – Drakulić said.
