8. November 2012. / Mining

Over the past 11 years, since Rio Tinto established its presence, Serbia has advanced political and economic reforms, and developed into a stable democratic country with a resilient market economy.   The Serbian government offers tax, customs and employment incentives for greenfield projects and undeveloped projects, in particular for export industries located in underdeveloped regions.  Serbian taxes are very competitive today, says Mr. Richard Storrie, General Manager, Rio Tinto Serbia.

Clear and stable mining legislation and regulations, based on internationally recognized standards, is essential to attract and retain FDI in the mining sector.  Serbia has done well in this regard and we encourage the Government to maintain stability and transparency as they move forward with new legislation.
