Serbia and Montenegro - Domestic trade

Belgrade serves as the economic and commercial center of the country. Pristina and Subotica serve as regional market centers. The domestic economy has been held back for the past few years due the lack of major privatization reforms and trouble in the general European economy. In 2002, inflation was at 18% and unemployment was at about 28%. Hours of business for transportation, communications, banks, shops, hospitals, and services are usually between 7 AM and 3 PM . Occasionally the workday will be split, with a siesta between noon and 4 or 5 PM , when businesses reopen until about 8 PM . Government offices are open from 7 PM until 3:30 PM during the week.
