    The first tranche of EU money to protect jobs in Poland

    The European Commission announced on Tuesday that it had paid Poland EUR 1 billion within the SURE instrument to help protect jobs. “This is just the beginning – Poland will receive a total of EUR 11.2 billion from SURE,” President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen wrote.

    The EC emphasized that the support in the form of loans granted on favourable terms is to help in the situation of a sharp increase in public expenditure on maintaining employment.

    As we read in the post of the President of the European Commission on Twitter, “Poland will receive a total of EUR 11.2 billion from SURE, including funding for mechanisms of reduced working time”.

    The EU program, announced in April, provides for credit support for the Member States to reduce the adverse effects of the coronavirus on the labour market and applies to its various sectors. The main goal of SURE is to provide employees with regular income, and companies to maintain their staff.
