And there are those who are also less satisfied, not God forbid because of themselves the assistance to the cultural industry, but because of the lack of clear criteria for assistance, also for other industries.

Uriel Lin, president of the Association of Chambers of Commerce

, responded to the announcement by the Ministries of Finance, Culture and Sports about the package of assistance to the world of culture: " Understand that this move indicates a mistake in the basic concept of the state treasury to whom should be compensated, when and how. "

Lynn explains that "compensation should not be given on an industry basis but should be given at the level of the individual business and every business in Israel currently affected as a result of the spread of the Omicron strain. The important and crucial test in terms of compensation, whether business It does not matter at all which industry in the economy they belong to.

The decisive criterion must be based on fairness and equality - any business that has suffered a significant real injury as a result of the emergency is entitled to compensation, and not because of its industry affiliation.

Compensation money should flow net to businesses and employees and not through intermediaries and intermediaries. "
