Malta has gained access to €120 million under the European Commission’s SURE Programme aimed at helping companies to retain employees during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The announcement was made by European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen on Monday evening in an interview released by Malta’s representation to the EU and TVM.

The SURE Programme, called the temporary Support to mitigate Unemployment Risks in an Emergency in full, is available to Member States that need to mobilise significant financial means to fight the negative economic and social consequences of the COVID-19 outbreak on their soil. The allocation for Malta is €244 million.

Loans provided to Member States under the SURE instrument are underpinned by a system of voluntary guarantees from Member States. Each Member State’s contribution to the overall amount of the guarantee corresponds to its relative share in the total gross national income (GNI) of the European Union, based on the 2020 EU budget.
