Coronavirus - Information for companies in Berlin

The spread of the coronavirus poses major challenges for the economy. As the economic development agency of the State of Berlin, we will provide you with intensive support in this difficult situation, compile all relevant information for you and advise you on support offers.

Already now it is foreseeable that the spread of the virus will have economic consequences for companies in Berlin. This relates to the cancellation of events, the interruption of supply chains, but also the handling of sick leave and quarantine regulations for employees.

Together with the State of Berlin, we want to prevent the city's companies from becoming insolvent and employees losing jobs as a consequence of the Corona crisis. The State of Berlin is currently working together with the Federal Government on concrete measures to support the economy and jobs in Berlin. Berlin Partner is part of the Round Table of the Senator for Economic Affairs, and involved in discussing the effects of the virus on the economy and appropriate support options. Together with the Berlin Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the IBB, Bürgschaftsbank Berlin, Visit Berlin, UVB, Dehoga and the retail association, concrete assistance is currently being developed.
