At the Radio Beograd 1, Aleksandar Ljubic said that in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic White Book still covers the areas it did before, with a particular focus on some of the issues that gained additional importance due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the so called “new reality”. Digitalization, an issue addressed by FIC for a long time, is one of those, he said. FIC Executive Director reminded of the key recommendations for FIC, including the acceleration of the European integrations, fiscal consolidation and better law implementation.
