Minister says intermediaries in supply of protective gear needed because of advance payment

Ljubljana, 8 April - Economy Minister Zdravko Počivalšek rejected at a press conference on Wednesday criticism concerning the procurement of protective gear during the coronavirus epidemic. He said the state would not purchase equipment directly from Chinese and other suppliers because it would not agree to advance payment, a demand from most suppliers.
