Political And Business Interaction Among Small Firms In The European Union
Source: IMP Group
The large majority of firms are small enterprises. In the European Union they account for 99 % and politicians are increasingly emphasising their importance for job creation, technological development and prosperity. Consequently the political focus is on these firms and a large number of decisions influencing their business activities are constantly taken by political actors at various levels. However, research on the role of political actors and their impact, both in the IMP-setting and other, has so far mainly focused on MNCs (MultiNational Companies).
