The COVID-19 emergency and its impact on SMEs: financial issues and support

08/05/2020 h 6.30 pm - Webinar by Giancarlo Giudici, Associate Professor of Corporate Finance

The COVID-19 lockdown caused a huge anxiety to all Italian companies for a number of reasons: loss of revenues and orders, missing paymenys from customers and liquidity shortage, outbreaks in the supply of raw materials. It is very difficult for SMEs to survive for long time (for few months) in such circumstances  because of higher levels of vulnerability. While the first concern is related to guarantee public health, it is clear that the impact this emergency will have on manufacturing and on small and medium enterprises is huge. The seminar will analyze all the financial instruments that might be implemented to foster SME resilience.

From June 3rd, all restrictions on movements inside Italy have been lifted. In their stead, the government is promoting the use of a new phone App called "Immuni".

Immuni is the exposure notification App of the Italian government, developed by the Extraordinary Commissioner for the COVID-19 Emergency, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and the Ministry for Innovation Technology and Digitalization. Its purpose is to notify users at risk of carrying the virus as early as possible, in order to minimize its spread. To learn more, visit Immuni's official website at https://www.immuni.italia.it/.
While downloading the App is not mandatory, its use is strongly recommended by the Italian government, as every single user increases its overall effectiveness.
