Financial support to the hospitality industry must stop as venues are allowed to open

Flemish minister of Finance and Budget Matthias Diependaele (N-VA) wants to put an end to the support measures for ailing sectors as soon as possible. That’s what he said in a conversation on Radio 1. ‘Companies that cannot survive on their own in a normal economy, we cannot keep them alive with public funds’, it sounds.

From 9 June, the catering industry will be allowed to open again, as will other sectors that have been closed for months due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many of these sectors can still benefit from state aid today, but according to Diependaele, it is intended to be discontinued as soon as possible. “As soon as we go back to a normal economy and a normal society, we must phase out the support measures as soon as possible”, says the N-VA minister.
