The Serbian language uses both the Cyrillic and the Latin alphabet; it’s the only European standard language with complete synchronic digraphia.

The Serbian economy continues to suffer from the sanctions imposed in the 1990s and it also suffers from very severe brain drain. Between 2009 and 2014, the public debt quota grew from 30% to more than 60%; inflation has fluctuated between up to 14% and, recently, below 2%; and the interest rate still exceeds 7% (source). The Dinar has depreciated against the EUR at a rate of roughly 4% per year over the last five years (source). Household debt is mostly denominated in EUR or USD.
