SARAJEVO, April 1 (FENA) - Prime Minister of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina Fadil Novalić said after a meeting with representatives of the political parties and their caucuses in the FBiH House of Representatives, where he presented a framework program of stabilization measures to assist the businesses, that it is a top priority for the FBiH Government to ensure subsidies for contributions and taxes for all employees in the real economy.

He also announced the establishment of two funds worth two billion KM each, to help businesses in FBiH.

He pointed out that the MPs offered certain remarks, but that they were very constructive and that all proposals would be considered at the session of the FBiH Government on Friday, after finalizing the set of measures.
