Public survey: state should offer more support to small and medium businesse

The majority of Czechs feel that the state neglects support for small and medium business over large enterprises, according to the results of a poll conducted by TNS Aisa for Czech Television. 64 percent of respondents said that state support for large businesses was adequate, while only 30 percent consider it adequate in the case of small and medium enterprises. The main hurdles for the latter are considered a complicated tax system, excessive bureaucracy and inadequate support for starting-up a small private enterprise.
