Croatia to support coronavirus-hit companies
The Croatia government will finance a shorter working week for coronavirus-hit companies whose turnover fell at least 20 percent from the same month last year, the prime minister said.
“The goal is to save the jobs in the companies where the extraordinary circumstances have reduced the working volume. The government’s support will amount to 2,000 kuna ($297.48) a month per employee,” Andrej Plenkovic told the news conference.
The measure is planned to be in effect from June 1 to Dec. 31, 2020 for companies who have reduced their working weeks due to a fall in activity as a result of the pandemic.
Plenkovic added that companies engaged in processing would be able to get support even if their revenues had fallen less than 20 percent. Reuters
