The project promotes a so called "Business-friendly concept" of local governance by introduction of one-stop shops and other measures implemented by the newly formed municipal teams for economic governance. In return, this model should create a more responsive local administration, by reducing the time for response to SMEs by 40%. The project has also improved business environment for SMEs through establishment of the Regional Centre for Economic and Rural Development (CERD) with a range of new business services provided to some 80-100 SMEs.
Implementation of this project resulted in: - Strong local partnership established and strengthened, economic governance improved and suitable operational framework for local SMEs developed in the SAVA-GARDEN region. - Regional Centre for Economic and Rural Development (CERD) established and strengthened to support business and rural development in the region. - A range of business support services provided to growth-oriented SMEs.
