Public institutions and services

SECO is committed to establishing a clear legislative framework and good public infrastructure in partner countries. These are the building blocks for setting up and growing small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Sustainable, inclusive growth requires effective public institutions and services that reach all segments of the population. Without legal certainty or a reliable water supply, for example, entrepreneurs will find it difficult to set up a company and create jobs.

SECO’s priorities

Strengthening public finances

Governments should budget their resources carefully and manage public funds effectively and economically.

Improving financial sector efficiency

A functional financial sector is well-developed, with the right combination of regulation, oversight and monetary policy.

Improving basic services

Firms and households need a supply of water and energy and waste removal services.
