“The FIC has taken on the initiative to gather the most relevant stakeholders and try to gain better insight into rights and obligations deriving from the new law. We hope that this is only the start of the dialogue regarding this significant law whose application starts in August this year. To that end, we should set a goal to continue the dialogue in months to come and try to jointly work on resolving the issues deriving from the practice,’’ concluded FIC Board member Goran Pekez.
