From January 1 next year, the one-time assistance for the first-born child will be increased from 100,000 to 300,000 dinars, the Minister of Finance Siniša Mali stated today.
Mali said in the Serbian Parliament that further support and incentives for the policy of increasing the birth rate were announced by the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić.
– We are increasing the one-time assistance from 100,000 to 300,000 dinars precisely in order to encourage young married couples, young people to have children. The budget we voted for yesterday, new highways, new factories, new and high-speed railways mean nothing to us if we do not have children who will ride on those highways and railways – said Mali.
The Minister said that President Vučić had announced that in the next 10 to 15 days he would come out with additional measures to support the birth rate policy for the second-born and third-born child.
– I hope that this speaks enough about the policy that the Government of Serbia is pursuing at the moment. If you look at the amount of assistance, taking into account the number of first-born children in Serbia, it is around 5.7 billion dinars of support and more assistance in 2022, exactly at the exchange rate of around 50 million euros – the Minister of Finance pointed out.
