Interministerial Meeting Focuses on Repercussions of Coronavirus

March 7, 2020

ATHENS – A wide-ranging meeting involving several ministries on Friday examined the most recent situation with coronavirus (COVID-19) in the country and reassessed their plans.

The ministries of Finance, Development, Labor and Tourism presented proposals for a government plan, which would include tax suspension for affected businesses.

Three levels of measures were examined: obligatory measures (e.g. closures of stores and theaters), local and professional sector measures, and measures for the economy in general.


ATHENS – Unable to travel in their own country because of record inflation and soaring prices on everything from gasoline to ferry boats and electric bills they can't pay, many Greeks can only watch the tourist throngs everywhere.
