The Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron, traveling to Nice today announced a series of measures for tourism professionals affected by the consequences of the attack on 14 July.
Among the measures is the deferral of loan payments, through the mobilization of public investment bank BpiFrance for public actors, at their request, explained the Secretary of State for trade, Martine Pinville, and one in charge of tourism, Matthias Fekl, who accompanied the Minister of Economy.
“the actors may request Bpifrance” said Ms. Pinville, with the establishment of a single number. Tax and social maturity may also, as appropriate, be smoothed or even postponed. Local authorities – town, city and region – had already presented Friday several measures to support tourism and Nice from the economic actors, a week after the attack of 14 July, which left at least 84 dead
Mr Macron recalled that since last Wednesday had been activated in Paris a cell of “economic continuity”, notably with the establishment of a single number for professionals concerned. The measures, he said, will be monitored weekly in the region and followed up every three weeks at the department level.
said Matthias Fekl for his part that the global diplomatic network in France stood at disposal of local professionals to continue, in terms of tourism promotion, to “bear the image of Nice” and the Côte d’Azur. “What has been done for Paris after the attacks in November will be for Nice today,” promised Mr. Fekl about an international campaign of image promotion of the French Riviera which will be charged the operator Atout France in partnership with local players.
Mrs Pinville also indicated that, on the beach decree against which local professionals are fighting because it threatens the size of their farms, she was ready to “work” on this subject and see how, “in compliance with the law,” could “meet expectations”. The “beach decree”, adopted in 2006, requires that each concession renewal, the space devoted to the huts does not exceed 20% of the area of a natural beach, and 50% of an artificial beach. The new facility should be as removable
