Press release following the 61st Government session

Објављено:

The Government of the Republic of Srpska adopted during its 61st session held in Banja Luka the Proposal of the Law on Mental Health.

This Law regulates the promotion of mental health, prevention and early detection of mental health disorders, rights and obligations in mental health care, medical intervention with regard to persons with mental health disorders, confidentiality of data from medical records and records of persons with mental health disorders, social inclusion and community life, bans in mental health protection, supervision and other mental health issues.

The proposed solutions in this law aim to improve the existing and develop new ways of protecting mental health not only of individuals but also of society as a whole, reduce the occurrence of mental problems and disorders, increase the availability of quality and timely provision of health services, rehabilitation and social inclusion of persons with mental health disorders, enhancing their role in decision-making in these processes with the aim of increasing personal satisfaction, health and reducing the cost of providing mental health services and for the sake of economic and social development.

The Government adopted the Draft Law on Factoring.

The reasons for proposing the adoption of this Law are reflected in the growing need for capital, credit risk protection, management of receivables and the service of the receivables payment that can be achieved through the financial instrument of factoring that can facilitate all of the above. In this law the factoring is regulated as non-banking financial service aimed to increase financial inclusion, i.e. ensure greater availability of finances to small and medium-sized enterprises through buying off the outstanding short-term cash receivables.

The adoption of a special law on factoring should contribute to further affirmation of alternative ways of financing micro, small and medium-sized companies. These companies have traditionally had difficulties in accessing the banking facilities due to low credit ability or inadequate credit facilities. Unlike loans where the lending decision has been based on the credit rating of the company and the collateral that the company can provide which has been aggravating circumstance for many small and medium-sized enterprises, with the factoring, the quality of the receivables is above the quality of the collateral. The advantages of factoring over conventional loans are particularly evident in economies where access to finance and inefficient payment systems is hampered.

Adoption of the Law on Factoring should contribute to:

- higher collection of receivables and thus higher liquidity and solvency of enterprises,

- higher legal security in business for contracting parties that would lead to higher investments,

- increase in the level of competitiveness of enterprises and business associations,

- lowering the debt of business associations and raising competitiveness in the financial sector and lowering the cost of capital.

The Government of Republic of Srpska also adopted the Strategy Proposal for the Development of Mental Health in Republic of Srpska for the period 2020 - 2030.
