Danijela Bobić is an economist working as the Program Director of Center for Advanced Economic Studies (CEVES). Danijela’s primary expertise lies in the area of sustainable, smart and inclusive economic development, with the particular focus on the private sector development. She was dominantly engaged both in the analytical work, and policy recommendations design and policy advocacy.
During her career, she gained an in-depth knowledge about the actual structure and characteristics of Serbia’s economy. This particularly includes uncovering the development potentials of sectors capable to lead strong and inclusive economic growth, uncovering firms’ critical factors of success and providing solutions for their support. Some of the topics relate to the local economic development approach, sectorial and value chain analyses, promotion of entrepreneurship, SME development and improvement of their international competitiveness.
Danijela is devoted to the evidence-based policy making, which was particularly lacking in the area of private sector development in Serbia in the previous years. Danijela has been actively engaged with policymakers, domestic and foreign development agencies on economic development projects.
