- After the central government’s approval of Royal Decree-Law 5/2021 for measures to support business solvency, the children’s products sector expresses its dissatisfaction at not including essential activities.
- ASEPRI asks the government to include the manufacturers of baskets, children’s shoes, childcare, toys, and childcare stores, all of which are excluded from these aids.
- We also support Fice and the ModaEspaña Confederation in their communications recently sent to the media.
From ASEPRI, the Spanish Association of Products for Children, which brings together all business activities related to products for children, we want to express the great dissatisfaction of our sector at not having been included in its entirety in the measures of recently published business solvency support.
With the approval of Royal Decree-Law 5/2021, new measures have been established to support business solvency in response to the pandemic. With them, a new line of direct aid is established, managed by the autonomous communities, divided into almost a hundred different beneficiary activities.
ASEPRI asks the government to expand these activities and include manufacturers of textile articles, children’s footwear, childcare, toys, and childcare stores , all of which are excluded from these grants.
We consider that the established criteria do not correspond to the current situation that our sector is going through and, like Confederación Moda España and FICE , we question why some members of our sector such as children’s fashion are eligible for such aid and others not, knowing that the crisis is global and has affected all areas equally.
The sector of products for children has been greatly affected by the coronavirus crisis, restrictions, perimeter closures, paralysis of its exports, etc. This has caused a large drop in sales and, in some cases, the cessation of activity for many of our manufacturing companies and businesses.
Regarding trade, they are repeated as often as Asepri has asked the government and the autonomous C. deemed essential to eat rcios childcare and children ‘s products to guarantee the supply of products for babies and children during the pandemic, safe products and certificates and to guarantee the safety and well-being of babies and children and allow their distribution in physical establishments.
The sector of products for children in Spain is a sector seriously affected and that has managed to rise to the height of the most complicated moments of the pandemic and we believe that it is necessary and fair that all the aforementioned headings be included and that all of our companies can benefit from these extraordinary aid.
