Indemnity Fund for Floriculture and Nursery Sectors
At the recent Flormart Onlife Roadshow Webinar, the Italian Government announced potential measures in response to the post-Covid19 recovery.
A specific indemnity fund for the Italian floriculture and nursery sector will compensate companies for the heavy financial losses suffered during the lockdown.
30% - 50% Drop in Turnover
With this provision, to be included in the next Prime Ministerial Decree expected shortly, the Government will meet the requests from the sector which lost from 30 to 50% of turnover between March and April.
The commitment was announced by Francesco Saverio Abate, Head of the Ministry for Agriculture, Food and Forestry Department, during the Flormart OnLife Roadshow web talk which brought operators in the Italian floricultural and nurseries world together.
Here they discussed problems associated with the current crisis and outlined the future of the sector. “No-one must be left behind”, explained Francesco Abate. “The world of floriculture and nurseries has suffered enormous losses and necessitates extraordinary measures.
Flormart 2021 will be held from September 22-24.
