Budget proposal and fiscal strategy define goals of economic development of Serbia well but the necessary reforms have not been outlined precisely. The budget should be unsustainable if wages in public sector and pensions are not kept under control next year. Also from twenty to thirty thousand employees are surplus labour. These are the main conclusions by the Fiscal Council.

Foreign Minister Ivan Mrkic sent a letter to all Serbian embassies and consulates criticizing "inaction, fall of motivation" and even lack of promotion of new Serbian leadership.
