The government has set aside RSD 18.4 billion (EUR 156 million) from the state budget to pay about RSD 18,000 per employee to 1,016,535 employees at 235,372 MSMEs across Serbia, Mali said in a statement.

In May, the government started the payment of three minimum monthly salaries to employees at MSMEs.

The government has also deferred the payment of taxes and social contributions worth RSD 29.5 billion combined, which will be paid in 24 instalments as of 2021.
