In the letter sent to António Costa and Ursula von der Leyen, together with a document with the priorities of Portuguese companies for the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union, CIP underlines “the urgency for the funds of the European recovery plan to be channeled to the real economy as soon as possible “.
In the letter introducing the document, the president of CIP, António Saraiva, defends that companies should be placed “at the center of the economic recovery”, after having assumed “a great responsibility in being able to maintain employment widely during the pandemic and having demonstrated creativity and flexibility to adapt “.
“However, many companies have collapsed and a large part is running out of available reserves to remain in operation”, says António Saraiva, adding that “public support, so far, has managed to mitigate difficulties and contain the increase in unemployment”.
However, support “is manifestly insufficient, in the context of an overwhelming crisis that has been going on for many months,” says the CIP leader.
For António Saraiva, “it is also urgent to free companies from unnecessary costs, eliminate barriers existing in the single market, and ensure a level playing field”.
“We must certainly move forward with the double climate and digital transition, given that they are the answer to our growth in the medium and long term”, also defends the president of CIP.
