  • Alexander Picker 24 May 2007 Threats: e.g. Inflation Core inflation came down markedly in 2H 2006 Move from a crawling peg exchange rate regime to a hard dinar policy has helped lower inflation This has allowed the National Bank of Serbia to cut interest rates 500 bps since September 2006. Increases in electricity prices and other administered prices will increase the headline inflation rate Medium-term the 15% average increase in public sector salaries may generate inflationary pressures National Investment Programme activity also presents an upside risk medium-term to the inflation outlook Lower oil prices and stronger dinar are the main reasons we see inflation stable this year at an average 7% and at 8% in December 2007 (partly due to base effects).
