Kinmen Announces Subsidies, Vouchers 金門率先宣布 發現金.振興券各3千元紓困

The Kinmen County Government has announced to grant a subsidy of NT$3,000 cash to each of its resident, on top of an additional NT$3,000 in stimulus vouchers. Meanwhile, lawmakers have urged the central government to distribute vouchers that don't require citizens to hand over cash first.  


With no end in sight to the pandemic, Kinmen County has announced cash subsidies of NT$3,000 and an additional NT$3,000 in stimulus vouchers. Combined with its earlier bailout program for low-income families, the county is spending NT$900 million to help residents.

Yang Cheng-wu, Kinmen County Magistrate:"In other words, every resident will receive NT$6,000. They can use the funds to pay their bills or help stimulate the economy."

Kinmen Resident:"Apart from the money, (the government) has to think about stimulating the economy. Some people might simply stick the money in the bank account, which doesn't do the economy any good." 

Although the Taoyuan City Council recently approved a distribution of NT$5,000 to residents, Taoyuan City Mayor Cheng Wen-tsan says the city doesn't have the funds for this. Instead, his administration is promoting NT$200 market vouchers. Residents had to register for the voucher raffle in May and the raffle will be held on Aug. 2. The vouchers can only be used at designated markets and night markets.

Cheng Wen-tsan, Taoyuan City Mayor:"We plan to issue 25,000 (vouchers). If everything goes well, we may hold another round or two on an expanded basis."

Resident:"You're giving people NT$200 each? You can't buy anything for NT$200 these days."

In response to the Executive Yuan announcing "quintuple" stimulus vouchers, both ruling and opposition lawmakers said the central government needs to distribute vouchers that don't require citizens to hand over cash first. They also said this year's voucher program needs to be expanded given how much worse the pandemic is this year than last year.

 

 

 

疫情持續延燒,重創經濟,金門縣政府率先大方宣布,將分兩階段發放3000元現金紓困及3000元振興券,再加上前期中低收入戶相關紓困,預計總預算達9億元左右。

金門縣長 楊鎮浯表示:「換句話說,每位鄉親,實際上,可以獲得政府挹注有6000元。針對性的來讓鄉親,不管是在紓困的救急,還是在振興的帶動景氣,都能達到一定的效果。」

金門民眾表示:「除了發錢,他也要考慮說,有什麼方式可以推動到振興,不然就可能就存起來啦!就不一定有振興到經濟。」

而雖然桃園市議會日前通過每名市民普發5千元紓困金,但市長鄭文燦表示,無足夠預算執行,市府推動200元好市券,5月登記完成,8月2號抽籤,中籤者可到領ibon領券,可到指定市場和夜市消費。

桃園市長鄭文燦表示:「我們預定發行2萬5千份。執行順利,我們會擴大第2波、第3波,而且使用範圍會再擴大。」

民眾表示:「你一個人200塊。我們說句不好聽的,200塊,我們現在買東西,根本看不到什麼東西。」

疫情趨緩,行政院已初步規畫發放「振興五倍券」,但藍綠立委表示,疫情衝擊社會程度,遠高於去年,也呼籲中央,以不拿現金換振興券為目標發放,且去年針對不同產業發放的各種類券,今年應延續且擴大。
