Incentives by regions

p1All Italian regions have issued specific laws providing business incentives such as:

Grants or subsidised loans to SMEs for capital expenditure and business creation.

Aids to the service industry,  trade  and tourism.

Aids to local business sectors.

These incentives are often combined with local assistance and consulting services, provided by either   local or international business  development agencies  or  by  regional  financial companies.

Regional programmes are also implemented for the specific purpose of benefitting from the European Regional Development Fund (  ERDF) and the European  Social Fund (  ESF).
