President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky initiated the creation of programs to support small and medium-sized businesses during the coronavirus epidemic, as the press service of the head of state reports.
“Small and medium-sized businesses today suffer the most because they cannot work and do not have a large financial ‘pillow’. But it is business that is jobs and taxes,” - Zelensky said at a meeting with representatives of the government and the banking sector of Ukraine.
The meeting participants discussed the creation of lending tools for new entrepreneurs, as well as ways to support existing businesses. In particular, it was a question of credit holidays and compensation of interest on loans.
“We need to create new ones and rethink the existing support programs, that is, expand the support of those who are already working in different fields. To save the business now is how to allow the country to breathe and live in the future,” - the president said.
In the coming days, the meeting participants will present their programs to support Ukrainian business.
