Preparation of reports on the State aid granted in Latvia till the accession of Latvia to the EU 23/04/2012
To increase the level of transparency in State aid cases the State Aid Control Department (acting as a secretariat of the State Aid Surveillance Commission till May 1, 2004) every year prepared annual report on State aid amounts granted to entrepreneurial activities. Reports covered state aid granted to the following sectors – manufacturing, agriculture, fisheries, transport and financial services. Moreover, reports contained also data on the State aid granted for tourism, radio and television, employment and training. In reports the aid amounts granted within “multi-sector” aid programmes were precisely divided by key aid goals or main beneficiary sectors, therefore ensuring full compatibility with surveys published by the European Commission.
Annual reports on the State aid are available on the web site of the Ministry of Finance or in the State Aid Control Department of the Ministry of Finance.
