February 19, 2020 – Retail Association was part of the IMAGE show on RTK where Sunday was discussed as a holiday.
The position of the Retail Association is that the prohibition of commercial activity on Sunday, in addition to undermining free competition – a right guaranteed by constitutional provisions, also carries with it consequences such as:
1. Reduces the number of employees by 20%,
2. It damages the local and central economy as well
3. Imposes that money be sent to the nearest countries in the region.
Therefore, in conclusion, we call on the central government and local/municipal governments to support and encourage policies that facilitate the development and sustainability of private enterprises, so that they can play their proper role in improving the social and economic situation of not policies that further damage the current situation.
