The impact of COVID-19 on SMEs

Question for written answer  E-002122/2020
to the Commission
Rule 138
Vangelis Meimarakis (PPE)

The Commission has recently proposed the creation of a new instrument for temporary support to mitigate unemployment risks in an emergency (SURE), with the aim of safeguarding jobs and workers across the EU that are currently affected by the coronavirus pandemic. This is a vital short-term measure to contain unemployment, but it does not address the real problem that SMEs are currently facing, namely their own viability. SMEs are crucial for economic growth and social development and constitute the backbone of Member States’ national economies.
