EU Directive on budgetary frameworks Annual data on general government participation

Data on participation of government in the capital of corporations are collected annually through the public financial assets statistics.

The equity covered comprises listed shares, unlisted shares and other equity. Data are covered only if the reporting unit has a direct participation of over 250 million euros (which is roughly 0.01% of gross domestic product) in individual public or private corporations. In this context, public corporations include the Landesbanken (regional public banks) and the Landesförderbanken (regional public development banks).
