Now,.HELSINKI (Reuters) - Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipila has called on the country’s leading manufacturers to take responsibility for the coronavirus crisis, according to a copy of the Sunday edition of the Helsingin Sanomat newspaper.
The Nordic country has been among the hardest hit in Europe by the COVID-19 outbreak, with 15,147 confirmed infections and just one fatality as of Monday, according to Johns Hopkins University.
Finnish companies have reported a surge in orders as the virus has spread to several industries and manufacturing activity has been heavily disrupted.
“The measures to halt the spread of the epidemic that have been put in place have not been sufficient enough,” Sipila was quoted as saying in the interview. “Our manufacturing sector, its efficiency and competitiveness is at risk. The companies which have so far shown little interest in taking responsibility for the situation must now act.”
“Our industry’s traditional fabric should not be destroyed by this new problem,” he added.
Finnish industry association EK added: “If the situation in the manufacturing sector is not dealt with at a top level, we can’t speak about efficient industrial economy in Finland.”
Among the measures the government is considering is to bring in new legislation to allow the companies to leave the workforce if need be, while also providing companies with tax breaks to temporarily close plants and cut labour costs.
Sipila added the government was considering a number of options including a wage subsidy for businesses that have been badly hit by the coronavirus crisis and a tax break for businesses that have remained closed.Q:
