Further details on the national strategy and what will go into the tourism sector.

The Minister of Tourism Vlajko Senic (SPO) announced today that the government will allocate 50 million EUR in tourism - 19 million this year and 31 million next.

The Serbian tourism industry generated a surplus of $14 million in the first half of the year.

Money will go towards promoting tourism abroad as well as to more specific projects such as securing new cableways at Mt Kopaonik and at other ski resorts. Further details on Belgrade specific projects will appear on the Belgrade Blog.

Incidentally I believe that Minister Senic has a very bright future in politics.

Apparantly not according to a Serbian economist quoted at B92:

But I dont really agree with him. I'm suspicious of the dubious arguments used in succession. First its all going to Belgrade (territorial, periphery vs centre), then investment will cause inflation (economic argument, not something keynesianists would necessarily agree with and if so they might reply higher inflation is a price worth paying for increased investment).

But the point about the railways is true enough.
