It will now be possible to access a one-year deferral of loan repayments.
The act does not provide for state guarantees for banks. Andrej Šircelj, the minister of finance is convinced that the liquidity of the financial system is stable, robust and he does not expect that this act could in any way affect the financial system and financial stability in the country.
The European Central Bank will also be notified about the decision.
