The General Assembly of the Central Union of Chambers was held today via teleconference, with the participation of the Minister of Development, Adonis Georgiadis and the Secretary General of Commerce, Panagiotis Stampoulidis.
The practical problems of implementing click away in small provincial towns, was one of the key issues that many Chambers of Presidents conveyed to the Minister. The President of the Chamber of Kefallinia-Ithaca, Stavros Spathis in his question stated “Mr. Minister, in Kefalonia and Ithaca we are at a good and controlled level in terms of cases, they are almost zero, tell us why the small shops are not open, especially now in the festive season, with all the security measures. The problem is practical, we accept complaints from professionals who can not work with the athenocentric click away. Help the small business of the Greek province not to collapse “.
In the storm of complaints about the click away, the Minister replied that no matter how hard he tried, he failed to find a safe way to operate the retail trade, without creating a risk to public health. He also referred in his position to the next measures of support from the Government, as well as his assessment that the situation will improve from March onwards.
Among the measures on the table with a high probability of implementation is that 50% of the first three rounds of the repayable advance should not be returned to the state, so it should be a subsidy, as is the case for the fourth phase. Finally, according to the Minister, a repayable deposit of 5 will be made in the near future, and a repayable deposit of 6, which will take into account the large reduced turnover of the festive period.
