EC clears EUR 280 mln tourism recovery scheme in Hungary
The European Commission on Wednesday said it approved a EUR 280 mln Hungarian investment scheme to support a sustainable recovery of the tourism sector, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Under the scheme, companies in commercial accommodations, catering, recreation, and other tourism-related businesses may apply for grants up to EUR 2.8 million to support investments.
It is expected to benefit around 1,000 companies in the tourism sector which has been hit hard by the coronavirus crisis.
The EC concluded that the scheme is "necessary, appropriate and proportionate to facilitate the development of certain economic activities, which are of importance for a sustainable recovery of the economy".
