Malta will give its citizens 100 euros for hotels, hotels and shops

June 9, 2020

The Maltese government has announced a package of measures amounting to around 900 million euros, with the aim of helping to free the local economy from the side effects of the pandemic, for example by making 100 euros available to over 16-year-olds to help them can spend restaurants, hotels and small shops.

Maltese Prime Minister Robert Abela has defended the need to work to “regain confidence in the future” and claims that the island has “room to maneuver” to meet the needs of its businesses. “Every day counts,” he said, according to the Times of Malta.

The proposed measures include the delivery of four coupons, each worth EUR 20, to people over 16 years of age. Four of these vouchers can be issued in bars, restaurants and hotels, while the remaining 20 euros can be used in shops that had to be closed during the worst moments of the pandemic.

The government will also compensate couples who have lost money due to the postponement of their wedding and NGOs, while reducing the cost of property sales. There are also plans to cut the price of gasoline and diesel by seven cents.

The Maltese authorities have discovered 632 cases of coronavirus, nine of which have lost their lives. Between Monday and Tuesday, only two new positive results were confirmed on the island to save the tourist season in order to avoid the economic collapse.
