There will be no new set of measures of support to the private sector, regarding the coronavirus consequences, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said for RTS. He reminded that Serbia had set aside EUR 5 billion to address the crisis, and cited the example of Great Britain, which had set aside EUR 6 billion.
When asked about a potential new set of measures for helping the economy, Vucic said that it was not to be expected for more money to be given.
He said that it wasn't just Serbia that didn't have the money, but that it was the case with other countries as well.
– We pay EUR 1 million each day for the tests alone. It's not a lot for one day, but this has been going on for 100 days. The expenses are great, but the country is persevering – Vucic said.
He added that the state had approached the crisis well and helped companies by paying minimum wages for three months.
– The final installment will be paid on July 7. We gave EUR 100 to over six million citizens – Vucic said.
