Deputy Economics Minister Wang Mei-hua says that coupons designed to help the economy recover from COVID-19 will be available starting in July.

Wang said on Wednesday that the launch date for the coupon program has been chosen to roughly coincide with the start of the school summer holidays.

Wang said that because multiple government ministries are involved in the coupon program, further details will have to wait until June, after the ministries have had a chance to hammer them out.

The stimulus coupons will come in both electronic and paper form, which Wang said will allow for all citizens to make use of them.
