The increase in beneficiaries for free holidays will be funded specifically this year, that tourist traffic is projected to be low due to the mockery, with an amount of their order 30 million. euros from the state budget, against 10 million. OAED for the subsidy for the holidays of the low paid in the last 6 with 7 years.

Every minor child gets 10 molecules, while for each 25 days with stamps and contributions in favor of the Employment Center account the beneficiaries receive 1 molecule, with a maximum of 36.
