Supply of financial capital to firms
Access to capital is a precondition in enabling businesses to start up and grow, and for innovative ideas to be brought to market. The government has both a direct and an indirect influence on the supply of financial capital to firms – directly through state-owned companies and foundations offering loans and venture capital, indirectly through reforms and initiatives with the aim of promoting private investments. Growth Analysis will contribute greater knowledge concerning firms’ needs and the government’s role and opportunities to rectify market failures in order to ensure that the government’s initiatives to complement financing in the market are as economically effective as possible. We will also analyse factors that influence private investments in all parts of the country and provide assistance with important data for future government initiatives.
