The Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Tourism will run a programme granting loans with subsidized interest to SMEs in Romania, a programme for spa tourism, one for stimulating business incubators and possibly a Horeca 2, Minister of Entrepreneurship and Tourism Daniel Cadariu announced on Friday, at Romexpo, told Agerpres.
"In the perspective of next year, we will run other programmes - and I mean the one for micro-industrialization, trade and services. We will have a programme through which we will offer loans with subsidized interest to SMEs in Romania, a programme for spa tourism, one for stimulating business incubators and, we hope, one for Horeca 2. Through this action, we aim to offer Romanian SMEs 150 grants worth 1,500 RON to cover their travel and accommodation expenses and we offered, for a period of three days, free stands where the representatives of these SMEs can showcase themselves. As is known, this year we had an intense activity from the perspective of the ministry, on this promotion component. We participated in eight international tourism fairs, in the two national spring and autumn fairs here, at Romexpo, and we had 55 promotion actions at the international level, participation in 47 specific fairs and eight economic missions," said Daniel Cadariu, at the opening of the SME Fair 2022.
