Targeted Support for Hospitality Sector Still Required
Today’s Government announcement regarding extending the Wage Subsidy was commended by Hospitality New Zealand, however, the association says it’s disappointing as it fails to recognise how critically the hospitality sector has been affected.
While Finance Minister, Grant Robertson, did make reference to hospitality and retail sectors being the most likely to be impacted by Level 3 and Level 2 restrictions, no targeted support or additional funding was released from its $14 billion COVID-19 Response and Recovery relief fund.
