Katowice Package for Business

Katowice Package for Business

Mayor of Katowice, Marcin Krupa presented on Monday - March 30, 2020 the details of the Katowice Package for Business. Last week, Mayor of Katowice appointed a special team of representatives of entities associating entrepreneurs - Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Katowice (RIG) and Chamber of Crafts and SME Entrepreneurship in Katowice (Izba Rzemieślnicza oraz Małej i Średniej Przedsiębiorczości w Katowicach), representatives of all Councilor’s Clubs in the City Council of Katowice, whose task was to present proposals for further actions.

- The outbreak of the coronavirus has put many entrepreneurs in a critical position. The income of most companies that can’t operate has dropped to practically zero. This include restaurateurs, hairdressers, craftsmen, beauty services companies or a tourist industry entities - generally the service industry. We have 48.5 thousand companies in Katowice today, of which as many as 46,000 are micro-enterprises employing up to 9 people. Many of these entrepreneurs live in uncertainty and don’t know whether they will survive this crisis. Today, it should be particularly emphasized that in recent years the transformation of Katowice has also taken place thanks to the high activity of our domestic business - emphasizes Marcin Krupa, Mayor of Katowice. - The Katowice Package for Business has two main goals: maintaining companies and preserving jobs. It is the result of both talks with our entrepreneurs and the work of a team of a dozen people - including business representatives, but also councilors of all Councilors’s Clubs, to whom I thank for efficient work across divisions. I would like to emphasize that the Package is our first such comprehensive activity, but probably not the last. We will observe the situation and act accordingly to the needs and within legal possibilities - adds Mayor of Katowice.

- The Katowice Package for Business presented by the Katowice City meets the expectations of our home business. It is important that as representatives of entrepreneurs we were invited to this important discussion and had influence on the presented solutions. As entrepreneurs, we are taught to take matters into our own hands and act even against the circumstances. However, the situation is unique - that's why the support offered by Katowice City can save many companies from going down, and some allow to get back on their feet faster - says Tomasz Zjawiony, Chairman of Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Katowice, who participated in the work of the team appointed by Mayor of Katowice. The Katowice Package for Business is to complement government assistance activities. It contains solutions that are possible to be implemented by local authorities in the current legal framework.
