Mickoski proposes set of anti-crisis measures for businesses and citizens


VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski said today that it is necessary to declare a
crisis in our country so that urgent measures can be taken.
He said at a news conference in front of the VMRO-DPMNE headquarters that
dealing with coronavirus requires maximum involvement of all professional and
human resources, but also commitment from all responsible entities.
– Yesterday we proposed anti-crisis measures to protect the health of citizens and
business support and made our staff available. I am disappointed that 24 hours have
passed and no government official has expressed interest in the assistance offered
and the measures proposed. Which means that only their own promotion is
important and that it is not a matter of protecting the citizens, but only their own
promotion, said Mickoski.
VMRO-DPMNE proposes economic anti-crisis measures for March which involve
freezing the obligations of companies towards the state, whose work is affected by
the situation with the coronavirus, freezing companies’ obligations to banks and
lenders, authorities to cancel and pay the March interest rates of the citizens and the
economy to banks and lenders, authorities to pay costs for employees in companies
affected by the coronavirus up to 50 percent and to immediately analyze everything
that has been affected by the new situation with the coronavirus and on the basis of
that analysis to identify the economic operators, the companies that are affected and
to immediately assist them.
The party also proposes an additional set of measures to protect the health of
citizens, which include procuring antiseptic means and their placement in public
circulation areas which citizens will freely use, procuring free masks and gloves for
the citizens, establishing an expert body which will help state institutions to
implement strict control of any abuses of defining high prices for the sale of masks,
antiseptics and other preventive aids, providing free assets to protect workers at high
risk of coronavirus infection, reducing the work of the state administration, with half
of the administration being released from and making a cyclical work schedule of the
state bodies, increasing human capacities in healthcare facilities directly responsible
for dealing with the consequences of the coronavirus.
