Troubled and uncertain times for business owners

A brief message for Maastricht's business owners from Executive Councillor Vivianne Heijnen.

Dear business owners,

First and foremost, I would like to wish you and your employees all the best in these uncertain times. The coronavirus crisis has affected us all, and especially business owners.

Last week, the Dutch Government announced a package of emergency measures meant to limit the negative impact on employment and the economy as much as possible. The municipal government has also adopted local measures to support businesses and other organisations. You will find all the measures pertaining to businesses on our website on the coronavirus support page.

Are you finding it hard to see the wood for the trees? The Maastricht Business Team is ready to help with advice and a sympathetic ear and by acting as your sparring partner. They’ll answer all your questions and show you the way. Let them know what problems you are up against and what you need, so that we can help you as best we can. Now, more than ever, it's important for government and businesses to work together.

I wish you the best of luck in the time ahead.

Vivianne Heijnen

Executive Councillor responsible for Economy and Labour Market
