Serier – Sida EvaluationDescription:
Sida Evaluation 02/21 an Evaluation of the NUTEK Implemented Projects 1992-1998 / The overall conclusion from the evaluation must be that the Swedish support to Estonia in terms of developing business services in a regional context has been quite successful as to what was de facto achieved. This is particularly the case with the first project. The most important contributions were:
- giving a strong push for SME development in one of Estonias most lagging regions (South East);
- creating a model for decentralised SME business development etc.
