We are implementing measures to rehabilitate the economy as quickly and efficiently as possible
The COVID-19 epidemic, which we have been battling for over a year now, together with the rest of the world, has long since surpassed the health aspect, and now has a social and economic component too. It is our obligation, as the Government, to implement measures for the recovery of the economy in the next period as quickly and efficiently as possible. To make it easier for employers and workers during the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Work Health and Safety Directorate has published a Guide to Safe and Healthy Work from Home. Also, the Employment Strategy, covering the period from 2021 to 2026, will be adopted soon, which the main goal is to enable continuous employment growth. Slowing down the migration of the able-bodied population of the Republic of Serbia to foreign countries, as well as attracting foreigners of various educational profiles and employment of young people, are also goals that we will strive to accomplish in the coming period. We are also working on seasonal employment reform.

The Ministry of Labour, Employment, Veteran and Social Affairs is also committed to increasing efficiency in exercising the rights of social welfare beneficiaries. An important step is to create a legal framework for its implementation. The Draft Law on the Social Card was adopted, as one of the priorities of the Government of the Republic of Serbia and the Ministry of Labour, Employment, Veteran and Social Affairs.
