Support for employment and economic growth
The government aims to support employment and economic activity by providing additional liquidity to SMEs and by encouraging the private sector to make additional investments, notably by reducing the tax burden.
This Budget proposes a number of measures for businesses. These measures reinforce and adapt the levers used to stimulate private investment, by taking priority action on four fronts. The government is:
- granting immediate assistance to SMEs, by providing them with additional liquidity and facilitating their funding;
- stimulating investment by businesses, by reducing the tax on capital and improving funding for major projects;
- stepping up and expanding efforts on behalf of the resource regions, by improving existing investment support measures;
- introducing other investment support measures, on behalf of the agri-food industry.
