Ministries, chambers of commerce and organisations

Thorough research is essential when you are drafting a solid business plan. As well as conducting in-depth market analysis, you need to factor in the national regulatory framework. What is the tax and customs situation? Are there any currency restrictions? What administrative processes do you need to deal with? What state funding and training opportunities are there? Information on all these issues can be found on the websites of government ministries, chambers of commerce and other relevant organisations.
