Petsas: Greece Has Taken Measures to Support All Media

ATHENS — "The government has taken multiple initiatives to support and strengthen the media, of all categories and locations, and to address the economic hardship caused by the coronavirus pandemic," government spokesperson Stelios Petsas said on Wednesday.

Answering a question from the opposition Movement for Change (KINAL) Central Committee General Secretary Vassilis Kegkeroglou, concerning the support of regional television stations, he said: "In the difficult and demanding conditions, in order to deal with the pandemic, we did not leave out the media industry. The regional media were supported from the very first moment, like any business that has been hit."

He underlined that the support package included, among other things, measures aimed at strengthening business liquidity, measures concerning insurance and tax liabilities, as well as overdue debts, and measures to support employees.
