At the press conference, the State, Economy and Digital Transition Minister, Pedro Siza Vieira, mentioned that these grants represent a total amount of over 7 billions, 1,160 of which are non-refundable. Pedro Siza Vieira mentioned that, besides said amount, "there will also be important support measures in the areas of sports and culture".
"These grants are more comprehensive and also more directed towards the areas that have been most affected by the situation throughout this year; they aim at encouraging companies to resume their activity in the near future, and will, consequently, last longer than what was previously announced", he said.
