Blue vouchers can be used for art shops, culture and education

The Economy Minister said that the blue €20 voucher which has been issued can already be used at art shops, for culture and education.

This was announced in a statement in reference to the request by the Malta Entertainment Industry and Arts Association, which asked that if vouchers are issued again, whether part of these can be used for activities related to art and culture.

The Ministry said that all the businesses registered under these NACE codes in July were sent a letter through registered post so that they can activate their Business Account for the digital application of the vouchers so that they can also start receiving and cashing in these vouchers

The Ministry also said that it will take note of other recommendations proposed by the same association, as well as take into consideration other alternative measures which are intended to help those in the sectors of art and entertainment.
