|Division||International Cooperation Division|
PPS, stockpiling 100 million masks in preparation for an emergency like the outbreak of COVID-19.
Giving manufacturers incentives for working at night or on weekends and holidays.
Securing additional private warehouses along with PPS-owned ones.
ㅇ The preferential use of the extra budget for PPS will be to remove difficulties facing the people who try to purchase masks to protect themselves from being infected.
ㅇ The next use will be to manage the supply and demand of masks. Even if the demand for masks decreased following the end of COVID-19, manufacturers would not get in trouble selling their masks.
The extra budget would be used for the following purposes:
- Stockpiling 100 million masks and purchasing melt brown (MB) filters, key raw materials required to produce masks.
- Providing fiscal incentives for manufacturers working around the clock to help stabilize the supply of masks amid challenging circumstances of increasing costs of raw materials and labor.
