Predrag Bubalo (Serbian: Предраг Бубало; orn 14 October 1954) is a Serbian politician who held various ministerial positions in the Government of Serbia under Prime Minister Vojislav Koštunica.

Firstly, he became the Minister of Industry and Privatization in October 2004, replacing Dragan Maršićanin. Prior to that, Bubalo was the Minister of International Economic Relations. He was also the Minister of Trade and Services in the Government of Serbia between 2007 and 2008. He was succeeded by Slobodan Milosavljević.
