‘Most entrepreneurs think they can survive a half meter society’ NOW

The majority of Dutch entrepreneurs expect to survive in the so-called one and a half meter society, in which measures have been taken to contain the spread of the corona virus. This is evident from a survey by the Chamber of Commerce (Chamber of Commerce) among nearly six thousand entrepreneurs on Tuesday.

More than a third of the entrepreneurs say to the Chamber of Commerce that they will survive the one and a half meter society. One in four entrepreneurs expects to be sure or likely to suffer from the changes.

The Chamber of Commerce survey shows that the mood is the most negative in the catering and personal services, such as hairdressers and driving school owners. Sixty percent of them say they cannot survive in the one and a half meter society.

The retail trade is one of the most optimistic sectors, according to the Chamber of Commerce: almost three quarters of retailers expect to survive in the one and a half meter society.

However, a majority of companies still have to make adjustments to their business. For example, according to the Chamber of Commerce survey, six out of ten companies should make adjustments. Four in ten would not even have made any adjustments at all.
