Gennimata Says Greek Catering Sector Targeted; Support Measures Insufficient

November 4, 2020

ATHENS — Opposition Movement for Change (KINAL) leader Fofi Gennimata on Thursday said that the restaurant and catering sector, which numbers 80,000 businesses and 330,000 employees, is being targetted by the government and that the announced support measures are still insufficient.

Gennimata discussed the consequences of the shuttering of restaurants, bars, cafeterias and others in the catering sector due to the outbreak of the pandemic during a video call with representatives of the Hellenic Federation of Catering and other relevant businesses.

KINAL leader said in her statements that the enterprises had been abandoned to their fate and "we propose targeted and substantive measures and we will fight inside and outside the parliament in order for these to be adopted before it is too late."
