Performance under the program is broadly on track. Recent economic indicators suggest that growth momentum has stalled for now, and risks to the short-term outlook have increased. Fiscal policy should continue to aim at medium-term consolidation. The agreed exit strategy from the freezes on public wages and pensions is appropriate. The gradual monetary easing strategy pursued by the National Bank of Serbia (NBS) remains appropriate. Serbia is well placed to handle possible spillovers from Greece, but close monitoring is required. The plans to restructure and privatize public enterprises are commended.
