The proposed amendment to the Law on Internal Trade, which foresees that trades will not work on Sundays and state holidays, is included in the agenda of a parliamentary session that will begin on Thursday.
The Ministry of Economy, which has prepared this draft law, will be obliged to adopt a by-law, within two months after the law enters into force, with precise exemptions, that is, to define those trades that will work, and which sell the goods necessary for the everyday life of the citizens. They are pharmacies, bakeries, petrol stations, groceries, newsstands, flower shops, etc.
The Chamber of Commerce Board has asked to be legally defined that Sunday and public holidays are non-working days.
