If anything proves and actually confirms the above financial size is the will of entrepreneurs to keep their businesses active-alive. At the same time, their belief that they can do it despite the negative situation they have to face is confirmed and has been shaped by the following key factors:
Ten years of financial crisis, Depoliticization, Pandemic.
Especially the last year has proved disastrous for business almost in its entirety as we are the region with the longest period of total exclusion and cessation of most of the economic activity.
It is obvious that, despite their proven will, απαιτείται η σταθερή υποστήριξη αυτής της επιχειρηματικής δραστηριότητας που συμβάλει στη διατήρηση όχι μόνο θέσεων εργασίας, but also in the social cohesion of a place affected by unemployment and low birth rates.
A step towards this support could be reflected in increasing the budget for this action-call, to meet all the proposals that have been submitted and essentially aim not only at maintaining jobs but also at increasing employment in companies.
To this end, we look forward to meeting your request for a sufficient and necessary increase in the budget for action..
for your attention and actions, Thanks in advance. The President of the Kozani Chamber, Nikolaos Sarris, is honored. "
