Do you know that...

  • In Serbia there are attractive companies for sale. They are in the list of Privatization Agency but also at the Belgrade Stock Exchange. The list is long, unfortunately much longer than number of potential investors. The crisis has left its mark. Until so far Serbia has cashed EUR 2.3 billions from sale of 1,643 enterprises. It is not known how much more it could get from further sales, but among 650 companies in the list of Privatization Agency there are still attractive firms.
