At Tuesday’s press conference, the Deputy Prime Minister in charge of economic affairs, coordination of economic departments and investments Fatmir Bitiqi and the Minister of Labor and Social Policy, Jagoda Shahpaska presented some of the measures of the fourth set of economic measures to revitalize the economy in conditions of COVID-19.
I think that in the whole set the inclusive approach in creating the measures is clearly visible, as well as the fact that the state is a partner of the citizens and the economy and that the assistance will reach where it is needed, said Bytyqi.
He pointed out that through the previous set with the salary measure, over 20,000 companies were supported, which employed 120,000 employees. This measure will continue in the last quarter, i.e. until the end of the year, namely the months of October, November and December.
According to him, it will be implemented gradually, according to the decline in revenues of companies. The period of revenue decline will be calculated for the period from April to August, compared to the same period last year.
