The Local Business Environment and Decentralised Cooperation
PLATFORMA : 2019
This study argues that reform of the business environment at the national level does not always lead to an improvement of business conditions at the local level. However, through decentralised cooperation, local and regional governments can lead reforms that support business growth, create jobs and drive innovation. It further argues that improving local business environment requires building the capacity of local and regional governments in partner countries and promoting decentralisation reforms.
