Abstract

Efficient assistance on the part of local governments in stimulating entrepreneurship may contribute to the economic development of the region, and expenditures from governments’ budgets for supporting business initiatives will be returned in the form of local taxes paid by well functioning local business entities. Actions taken to support their competitiveness are particularly important in the aspect of opening local markets for companies from Europe in the process of integration. The subject of discussion presented in this article is the forms of support provided by local authorities for development of entrepreneurship of the rural area from the region of Podkarpacie, being one of the weakest areas on the economic map of Poland. Survey results confirmed that to a small extent local governments’ actions could be visible in the area of supporting development and stimulating entrepreneurship on the rural areas from the region of Podkarpacie. Vast majority of entrepreneurs said that local governments did not play any role in promoting business undertakings in the region of Podkarpacie.
