Every year, the County Administrative Board is allocated funds by the government to be used for different enterprise allowances. These allowances are designed to help the county's businesses with their long-term profitability and growth.
The scope and direction of the allowances varies between different counties and over time, depending on the resources and specific assignments that the government has issued to counties. We may, as part of the initiatives for regional growth, provide grants for investment, marketing, growth of innovation and training in small and medium-sized businesses. There is also a special allowance for commercial services in rural areas, such as village shops and gas stations.
