BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Serbia's government has been reshuffled in a bid to speed up economic recovery and accession of the Balkan country into the European Union.
Parliament late on Monday approved the new Cabinet of Prime Minister Ivica Dacic in a 134-65 vote that followed a heated three-day debate. Dacic said that "our primary goal is to stop the economic downturn and create new jobs."
Serbia has been struggling to restart the economy after years of isolation and decline during the wars of the 1990s. The country formally became a candidate for EU entry earlier this year.
The reshuffled government has 11 new ministers including U.S.-educated Lazar Krstic, recently employed by the global management consultancy McKinsey & Co., who has become the new finance minister.
