The Government of Castilla-La Mancha and the social partners have reached an agreement to promote a Plan of Extraordinary Measures for the Economic Recovery of the region on the occasion of COVID-19 that includes 74 actions for an amount that exceeds €231.6 million.
The agreement, loaded with the symbolism of having taken place within the framework of May Day, Labor Day, articulates 64 measures directly related to the recovery after the impact of the coronavirus on the regional economy, structures its lines of action on the budget reality of the region and mobilizes more than half of its amount in this 2020; and puts the focus in an essential way on the recovery of SMEs, self-employed and workers in Castilla-La Mancha.
The plan has its main focus on workers, the self-employed and SMEs; in short, in guiding support to the promotion of economic activity, extraordinary measures of liquidity and flexibility aimed at reducing costs for companies and the self-employed, as well as direct non-refundable aid for different groups.
All these measures seek to maintain and boost economic activity in all economic sectors and especially in those most affected, such as tourism, commerce, industry and crafts.
The plan is, therefore, aimed at avoiding that the economic paralysis derived from a temporary situation such as the current one, has a structural impact that weighs on the economic and social recovery of Castilla-La Mancha, once this exceptional situation has been overcome.
