  • we can propose solutions valuable to businesses and members of public administration

 

We consider the most important areas that have impact on business in Prague 1 to be:

 

  • the issue of transportation and transport relations, the negotiation of conditions for entry to the city center, and capacities and conditions for parking

  • the need for the construction of underground car parks in the historical areas of Prague

  • the loss of locals as a stable group of customers, and the “mortification” of Prague 1 via restrictive regulations

  • the departure of major employers from the city center and thus their employees as creditworthy customers

  • the need to constantly improve the quality of street interiors – changing the surface of pavements, less noisy road surfaces, the planting of new trees

  • the minimizing of short-term occupation of public spaces and a predictable long-term concept of appropriation

  • the inconsistent approach to those violating the rules of public order

  • the fact, that in the long run, the State as well as the City of Prague are not able to decide on the use of many empty buildings on their property and provide them to businesses, and that many state institutions reside in buildings that the state could more appropriately offer for business activities

  • the dilatory approach of government authorities whose benevolent approach to the illegal practice of some businessmen implicitly hamper business conditions for those who invest considerable sums of money to meet legal requirements, and thus allow some an unfair competitive position

  • new business activities that assist in raising the standards of Prague 1 as the center of a modern European city in accordance with the historical traditions of its transformation
