PM: Serbia extremly successful in digitalisation; HBR: Limited infrastructure

July 20, 2021

During her visit to New York, Serbia’s Prime Minister Ana Brnabic told a conference on digitalisation on Tuesday that her country was “one of the globally most successful in technology and that some put it on the fifth, some on the tenth place in the world.”

She added she was proud of her Government’s achievement in education, IT and digitalisation.

Brnabic singled out the introduction of programming in primary schools in Serbia in 2017 as one of her team most tremendous successes.

She added that during her mandate, four scientific-technological parks opened in Serbia.

In its report from December 2020, the Harward Business Review (HBR) put Serbia among what it described as ‘break out countries’ category, or “economies with limited existing digital infrastructure, but which are rapidly digitalising,“ together with China and Russia.

According to the report, Croatia and Bosnia are among the ‘watch out economies,’ „which includes countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and Southern Europe, characterised by shortcomings in both existing digital capabilities and momentum for future development.“

The report put Slovenia into the ‘stall out economies, saying that „many of them are in the EU and have mature digital landscapes, but exhibit less momentum for continued advancement.“
