The Polish government is set to present a third set of measures to fight the fallout of the COVID-19 crisis by the end of the week.
The new “shield” is meant to introduce subsidies for apartment renters, special solutions for local governments and the tourism industry, as well as larger subsidies for employees’ salaries at the largest companies.
News solutions for local governments will include the poviat (district) revenue for state-owned land management being increased from 25 to 50%. Cities will be able to increase their debt this year provided the additional expenses are related to fighting the pandemic.
The Polish Tourism Organization is working on a solution to support the tourism industry, with the idea that Poles will receive special vouchers for holidays in Polish hotels to support domestic hoteliers who have been affected by the crisis.
