The decision of the government of the City of Buenos Aires to resume the strategy of closing shops in various areas of the Capital represents a serious setback in terms of recovery of activity and presupposes an acceleration in the process of bankruptcy that crosses the sector, said this Sunday the Federation of Commerce and Industry (Fecoba).
“The quasi-terminal situation of neighborhood commerce is affected again today as a result of the decision of to restrict the exercise in the main centers and arteries commercial de la Ciudad, “Fecoba said in a statement.
“The merchant made many efforts to adapt his business to protocols, guaranteed social distancing and respected sanitary measures. It is not the responsibility of businesses if the movement of people on streets and avenues increases. We believe that it is essential that the measures be taken after a joint work between the government and the merchants themselves, “said Fecoba president Fabián Castillo.
For businessmen, the measure puts many entrepreneurs in bankruptcy
Castillo considered that “it is necessary look for creative tools that are superior and not easy-to-fulfill solutions that imply decreeing the death of SMEs in the City “.
“By the time it is decided to resume activity, between 25 and 35 percent of businesses will have disappeared, leaving a string of unemployed and having been de-financed by the State due to the impossibility of paying taxes. 70 days ago, most of the locals They are closed and what is at stake is subsistence, “Castillo stressed.
