Abstract: This study links public sector efficiency to firm growth via several microeconomic channels. The results show that greater public administration efficiency induces higher rates of fast growing firms. Especially corruption and ineffective justice systems were identified as the factors that most impede firms' growth. In addition, public service provision that relies on fees rather than on taxes was associated with higher efficiency.
