The aid will take the form of guarantees on loans primarily to large companies with a significant share of exports.
The European Commissioner for competition, Margrethe Vestager, said the measure would help Czech firms to carry on during the crisis and after it ends.
The scheme is open to companies who get a least one-fifth of their annual income from international sales, Czech Radio explains.
