Companies will receive a small financial "basket" made available to them during the emergency situation created by the coronavirus. The day before the official launch of the anti-coronavirus package , Prime Minister Edi Rama revealed some details about the financial package to the media.
Rama replied that the government will provide the necessary financial guarantees to the concern of the companies that have been forced to suspend their activities.
“I have often heard absurd requests from the business community. The team of experts is working day and night to implement the financial guarantee package. As I said from day one, those who are forced to stay home will not be left without their wages.
For businesses that are firm and unable to pay their employees' wages, the government will provide a financial guarantee. Even for small business owners with sales of less than $ 140.000, the government will provide a financial tool to deal with the situation. We are still working on these measures which will be ready tomorrow ", said Rama.
Rama then also spoke of the large companies that had made requests to be able to access government financial aid. Considering their misplaced Rama requests, entrepreneurs limit unnecessary expenses and expensive vacations.
“I always defended big businessmen when they were attacked and considered oligarchs. It's time to give instead of making requests for state aid " said Rama.
The premier also spoke of the requests made to postpone the payment of electricity bills. Rama ruled out this possibility as there would be a collapse of the state-owned supply company. "There are no reasons for this suspension, as workers, even those left at home, will receive their wages regularly so they will have the opportunity to pay" Rama reiterated
