The Initiative for Policy Dialogue and its partner, the Center for Policy Alternatives (CPA), hosted a policy forum focusing on macro-economic policy and privatization strategies in Serbia in 2001. Serbia was embarking on a series of economic reforms and some policymakers promoted a program of rapid liberalization.On the invitation of Miroljub Labus, Deputy Prime Minister, and Goran Pitic, Minister of International Economic Relations, IPD held extensive discussions with the head of the Central Bank, the deputy prime minister, and the ministers of economics, finance, labor, and education on a wide range of economic issues. The dialogue was successful in helping to create a middle road as the beginning of an appropriate privatization policy for Serbia.
