Lány (Kladensko) – The advisory team of President Miloš Zeman will discuss the economic impacts of anti-epidemic measures at the chateau in Lány today with the participation of the Minister of Industry and Trade Karel Havlíček (for YES). On Friday in the Chamber of Deputies, Havlíček stated that he would acquaint the President and his advisers with the priorities of the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Ministry of Transport for this year.

“We will discuss the priorities for 2021 in both industry and transport. I will present what we want to complete in transport,” Havlíček said in the Chamber of Deputies on Friday. According to him, the debate will also be about nuclear energy, the low-carbon law, the transformation of the heating industry, the promotion of renewable sources or the end of coal mining.

In the case of the economic impact of anti-pandemic measures, data from the Ministry of Finance show that 231.5 billion crowns went from the state budget to combat the coronavirus pandemic from last March to the end of January this year. Direct measures, for example in the form of compensatory bonuses, Antivirus programs and other programs, required 144.1 billion crowns. The deferral of tax advances was calculated by the Ministry of Finance at 24.3 billion crowns and expenditures on health care in the form of the purchase of protective equipment, rewards for health professionals or debt relief for selected hospitals at 63.1 billion crowns.

According to economists contacted by ČTK, the year-long coronavirus pandemic has deprived the Czech economy of hundreds of billions of crowns and tens of thousands of jobs. The economy fell by a record 5.6 percent last year.
