The Serbian Chamber of Commerce (PKS) has submitted to the Government of Serbia proposals for economic policy measures, among them the establishment of a guarantee fund that would give favorable loans to the economy and extend the deadlines for payment of electricity and gas bills for businessmen by 30 days. PKS suggested that all workers whose engagement in an emergency situation is unnecessary receive a minimum wage of about RSD 30,000, and that the state grants businessmen relief for payment of payroll taxes and related contributions. Establishing a fund that would primarily give micro, small and medium-sized enterprises access to low-cost loans was a priority measure. PKS requested that the state assume a guarantee of 50 percent of the appropriations for each loan, while the rest of the risk would be borne by the creditors. We propose to extend the deadlines for payment to the public companies Srbijagas and Elektroprivreda and others providing public utilities for one month, on the already agreed due date of obligations - demanded PKS.
