Regulation of business operations

The Ministry of Employment and the Economy is responsible for the regulation of economic activities. This section focuses on common preconditions related to running a business, such as business freedom, the trade register, as well as systems in place to protect corporate financial reporting, regulation and industrial property.

In addition to these entities that apply to all companies, the MEE is responsible for the regulation of certain businesses that require licenses, such as real estate agencies and debt recovery services, as well as the special regulation of companies that sell package travel and provide accommodation.
