"Dear Mr.. Ministers, διανύοντας τη δεύτερη φάση της πανδημίας του κορονοϊου είναι προφανές ότι η μεγάλη πλειοψηφία των επιχειρήσεων της Π.Ε. Kozani is experiencing borderline situations, of course those who managed to withstand the first wave of consequences last Spring. The financial breath given to the companies of PE. Kozani with the program of strengthening the small and very small enterprises that were affected by COVID-19, μέσα από το Επιχειρησιακό Πρόγραμμα Δυτική Μακεδονία 2014-2020 αποτελεί μία σημαντική δυνατότητα σε αυτή την εξαιρετικά δύσκολη περίοδο.
However, it is a fact that problems continue to exist and swell as the pandemic lasts, especially for companies that will either not be funded by this program due to low scoring and coverage respectively of the amount of 40m. Euros allocated for our region , or because they did not meet the criteria of the original invitation.
Based on the above, we have already proposed to the Regional Governor of Western Macedonia in a document, K. George Kasapidis, the following:
«1ον) To have a new program for the support of small and medium enterprises, which will concern enterprises, which as mentioned above, είτε αποκλείστηκαν λόγω χαμηλής μοριοδότησης είτε λόγω των κριτηρίων της αρχικής πρόσκλησης, that is, to cover companies with costs below 10.000 euro, as well as start-ups and
2ον) Provide for the invitation of a program that will be related to a subsidy through entrepreneurship coupons and will concern the financing of companies for the purchase of electronic equipment and education based on modern needs.. (electronic invoices, e-commerce, teleconferencing etc.)»
The strengthening of the business world of PE. Kozani and especially the companies that experience to the maximum the consequences not only of the pandemic, αλλά συνάμα και της απολιγνιτοποίησης, which is an extremely special situation in our area and is in progress, the measures and policies discussed and taken for the fair transition to the new post-colonial era have not yet been implemented, καθίσταται αναγκαία όσο ποτέ μέχρι σήμερα. The companies of PE Kozani as a whole are important, in this difficult time, to remain viable, to be an arm of the effort and the dynamic development course that we all hope to start soon.
For this, please investigate on your behalf the possibility of financial support from National resources και τυχόν άλλους όλων των πολύ μικρών, small and medium-sized enterprises (ΜμΕ) of our area, οι οποίες δεν ωφελήθηκαν βάσει των κριτηρίων που τέθηκαν από το πρόγραμμα ενίσχυσης της Περιφέρειας Δυτικής Μακεδονίας. Hoping that you will see our request positively, Thanks in advance".
