Development Minister Mihalis Chryssohoidis on Monday announced a cash injection scheme worth 200 million euros for enterprises hit by the ongoing crisis, saying the government’s main priority was to support new and healthy forces of the economy.
The programme will begin from September and will cover enterprises operating for at least five years in the sectors of manufacturing, green economy, home building, transport and high value added services which have been mostly hit by the crisis.
The plan will cover also enterprises with negative balance sheets employing at least one worker on the precondition that they have tax and social insurance clearance and that they will maintain their job positions. Another precondition is that enterprises should have received any state support more than 200,000 euros in the last three years. The ministry expects around 20,000 to benefit from the programme.
