Slovak Blogger Promotes Fairness in State Support for Businesses

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Slovakia, Citizen Media, Digital Activism, Economics & Business, Governance, Ideas, Law

Blogger Robert Huran reports [1] [sk] on the initial success of his online form [2] [sk] for entrepreneurs, which was created two months ago in response to the news [3] [sk] of the €200 million governmental support for ten selected companies. The reasons these companies were chosen included promises of investment and creation of 2,400 new jobs, as well as preservation of about 1,500 jobs. Now, thanks to Huran, over 200 companies are going to ask for €33 million in state support for providing over 3,200 new and existing jobs. Huran's goal is to push for clear rules that will be the same for everyone – or to discourage stimulus at all, to prevent deformation of entrepreneurial environment [4].
