Horizontal and proportional entrepreneurship support measures for the 'next day' after the coronation call for the Piraeus Chamber of Commerce and Industry, as it is difficult to find a business that is not affected by the impact of the crisis.
At the same time, however, it calls for “healthy” businesses to demonstrate, once again in difficult times, “economic patriotism”.
This particular form of 'economic patriotism' has nothing to do with 'economic nationalism', the EBU points out.
“It is not related to any coordinated and promoted behavior of consumers or businesses with the favorable treatment of goods or services produced in our country or other European countries, nor the stimulation of demand for goods by protecting the domestic market from foreign tariff competition. and quotas. Nor does it refer to acquisitions by investors of domestic private or public companies. “
The president of the chamber, Vassilis Korkidis, referred to the recently emerging form of “economic patriotism” in our country, created after the severe decade-long crisis and is the financial support of the needs of Greek society and the national economy by private domestic businesses and organizations.
As he said, “the aim is to support the domestic economic activity and social cohesion of our country. This particular form of economic patriotism is described as a kind of “self-defense” for the survival of domestic SMEs and the maintenance of employment.
Today's emergence of “economic patriotism” is all about helping the coronavirus overcome the spread of the pandemic and prevent the collapse of the public health system, with private sector donations of necessary healthcare material to hospitals and donations to hospitals and donations .
“At the same time, because the impact on the Greek economy is enormous and multiplying every day, those who are still able and able to” pay back “must retain their staff in every way possible and pay their financial obligations on time. Everyone is affected, some more and others less, some directly and others indirectly, but priority is given to the weakest socially and economically.
Greece is in a state of emergency and no single emergency measure will ever be enough, nor can it help everyone, as national resources are inexhaustible. Our minds should be on tomorrow and our concern is to get healthy as soon as possible the next day. Businesses will then need real support and liquidity to re-operate. “
Meanwhile the Board of Directors of EVEP plans, along with its member companies, the “next day” of pirate entrepreneurship.
