She emphasized that so far no company has received money, while she said that it is not a handful of oligarchs who benefit, but 300 companies. "No company has been compensated, we were in a hurry to start the compensation. They are not a handful of oligarchs, they are the majority of businesses in the construction sector, there are 300 businesses that have been contracted or have an active contract. We have supported all those sectors that are affected by the crisis, trying to get the government to share the costs with the subjects so that the economy does not slow down", stated Ibrahimaj.
