Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic has talked to representatives of companies which produce surgical masks and disinfectants, the government's PR office announced. The companies' representatives have pointed out that they will organize work in three shifts, RTS reported.
Another topic at the meeting was how the state could help companies increase their production capacities.
Representatives of most companies said that they would organize work in three shifts in order to respond to an increase in the demand for disinfectants in the local market.
The meeting was attended by the president of the CCIS, Marko Cadez.
In the cases where there's a problem with getting the materials for the production, it was agreed for the CCIS to help in looking for the materials, considering that there are already problems with supply in the world market, the press release says.
