Vucic claims thousands returned to Serbia

February 12, 2024

President Aleksandar Vucic said on Monday that thousands of people have returned to Serbia over the past three months.

More than 21,000 people have returned to Serbia over the past 100 days from the region, Europe and even from Canada, he told reporters at the opening of the Serbia-Greece Business Forum in Belgrade.

Vucic added that the country still does not have the workforce it needs. Vucic said Greek companies are welcome to come to Serbia because the country does not have the construction capacities to build everything needed for the specialized EXPO 2027.

“People return as salaries rise along with opportunities but we still don’t have enough of a workforce,” he said.

The opposition has been saying for months that thousands of mainly young people have left the country seeking a better life abroad.
