Government responses to support small businesses in this time of crisis

Diogo went through a very detailed and insightful examination of the measures taken by the PT Government to stimulate the economy through:

  • Liquidity (Credit Lines),
  • Fixed cost relief (Moratorium on payments to the state/on credit payments & Simplified Lay-off),
  • European Support (ECB €750bn to buy bonds - Flexibility under the EU’s Fiscal Rules)

And presented more particularly the 15 measures taken by the Camara Municipal de Lisbon.
