Covid 19, a global pandemic, required the implementation of exceptional health measures with the corollary of significant economic consequences. In order to support the economic fabric and meet the cash flow needs expressed by companies, the institutional players in the Alpes-Maritimes department, in a spirit of territorial solidarity, mobilized immediately by creating an emergency fund of a global amount of 8 Million euros.
