HALF MILLION SERBIAN CITIZENS UNABLE TO SATISFY THEIR BASIC NEEDS

Must Read

On the occasion of the World Day of Social Justice, Serbian Ombudsman Zoran Pasalic warned that according to the latest data round 500,000 Serbian citizens cannot afford products and services considered essential for a civilized life. Mostly exposed to the risk of poverty are families with three or more children, the sick, unemployed and youth under eighteen. Their position he described as “extremely difficult”.
“In the times of restrictions, the Government support for children, youth and elderly people is necessary, as well as the strengthening of right to social security, health, education and employment. It is also important to act in the spirit of solidarity and responsibility for those who are mostly exposed to social risks and unable to solve their problems without help of the organized society”, concluded Panic.
Serbian unions often warned that only a radically different economic policy might save us from the present disaster: the country should have its own development strategy, invest in vital segments (such as infrastructure, education and research) and keep control over the still existing public services. Relying mostly on foreign investment was never a successful growth strategy – it was more a debt one had to pay to one’s foreign sponsors.
