As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Labour Minister Josip Aladrovic announced the reduction of state aid to sectors that have achieved good business results, as well as the continuation of aid to those who still desperately need it, as was further detailed previously.

“This is no longer the situation on the labour market and in the economy in which we need to continue to have very intensive support from the state,” said Minister Aladrovic, adding that with more than 12 billion kuna in net support for enterprises and their employees paid out, the pool of those who actually do need that help is decreasing, according to a report from H1.

Depending on the unfolding epidemiological situation, he said, in the coming months there will be a further reduction in aid.

“Certainly, some of those who received intensive support from the government will now, due to changed economic circumstances, believe that they can continue on their own, with the retention of jobs and the retention of business substance and everything that was exposed due to reduced business activity,” Minister Aladrovic explained.

He pointed out that the state will continue to support those who need it the most, adding that they have held consultations with various social partners and announced another round of consultations, saying that by the end of this week, they will inform which sectors these new decisions on the paying out of government aid will apply to.

“What we can now say that we see as the most exposed activities are those sectors that are related to extremely large gatherings, the organisers of sporting events, cultural events, the event industry itself, travel agencies… Other sectors that are now able to work at full capacity no longer require that same state support and therefore we will go in the direction of reducing state support where it isn’t most needed,” said Minister Aladrovic, adding that he does not believe there will be additional restrictions introduced anymore.
