Serb central bank cuts GDP forecast
Serbia’s economy will grow less than expected this year because of the deteriorating economic outlook in the euro area, its key trading partner, and subdued domestic demand, the Belgrade-based central bank said. Gross domestic product will expand 2% in 2013, compared with an earlier 2.5% forecast, the National Bank of Serbia said in its quarterly inflation report Wednesday. The key contribution will come from agriculture and industrial production. The economy expanded an estimated 1.9% in the first quarter, led exclusively by car industry and crude oil product exports.
