The Spanish government said on Wednesday the European Union’s proposal for a 750 billion euro ($824 bln) coronavirus recovery fund would serve as a good basis for further negotiations.
In a statement, it welcomed the proposal as responding to “many of Spain’s demands.”
Reuters earlier reported Spain would receive 140 billion euros from the fund, of which 77 billion would be grants and 63 billion loans.
One of the elements of the proposal is a solvency support instrument to help companies hit by losses which the Commission estimates will run between 720 billion euros and more than 1.2 trillion euros by the end of 2020.
