The Provincial Council of Bizkaia has approved an urgent plan for economic reactivation after the coronavirus crisis with which he will inject 95.5 million in the economy of the territory.

It includes microcredits for the self-employed and small businesses, a special employment plan, a Renove Etxea to encourage construction activity, and trade and culture bonds.

This plan, called “Biscay forward!“, was approved in the council of government yesterday. It will be activated next May 11 and is divided into three parts: redirect 12 millions of the available of the provincial departments, and add another 30 million more for the development, until December 31, of a dozen economic measures aimed at helping the self-employed, people who have lost their jobs and companies.

To this direct investment are added the new tax incentives amounting to 53.5 million included in this plan.

The calculations made by the Provincial Council estimate that each euro invested in this plan will generate an economic impact of seven euros. Thus, with the 95.5 million it is expected to generate 672 million impact.

The actions have been designed to help the Biscayan economy: the 15,343 freelancers forced to close their businesses and the 22,764 who continued working but have been seriously affected; the 5,373 people who have lost their jobs due to the crisis; and the 3,347 companies forced to lower the blind and the 6,607 affected by the state of alarm.
