Together with the Italian scheme intended for small and medium-sized enterprises, the Italian measures aim to support the solvency of a large spectrum of companies that have suffered from the coronavirus outbreak, thus helping them to ensure the continuation of their activities and supporting employment.
The scheme targets large companies that have faced a severe reduction of revenues in 2020.
To be eligible, among other criteria, the companies should be considered strategic for the economy and for the labour markets. ■
