Tsipras Presents SYRIZA’s Business Aid Plan to Rhodian Production Reps

ATHENS — SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras presented the main opposition's proposals to help businesses, at a special event in Piges Kallitheas on the island of Rhodes addressed to representatives of the production sector.

"This year we are not talking of great turnovers, we will talk about the need to keep businesses viable," Tsipras said, particularly in tourism and the 20 pct it represents in the Greek GDP. To mitigate losses and the emotional factor, "we propose and demand a front-loaded program to support tourism businesses and the food sector," he underlined.

The main issue especially for seasonal businesses, he said, is working capital and there is no access to liquidity right now, with obligations running.
