Investors will have to guarantee the creation of a number of new jobs that equates to at least 10 percent of the average staff level over the past 12 months. The number of new employees cannot be lower than 40 at any given time, the TASR newswire wrote. If a company applies for stimuli in order to expand production, it must guarantee a production increase of at least 15 percent in value or volume compared to its average over the past three years.

The newly created jobs will have to be preserved for at least five years, the SITA newswire informed about the act. It should become effective as of May 1, 2013.
