Governments have always intervened in the economy. This intervention varies in terms of scope. Presently, one of the most important instruments of government intervention in the economy is the provision of state aid. State aid puts its beneficiaries in a privileged position, which increases the importance of monitoring the aid granted and introducing limitations in terms of its scope and amounts. A particular type of state aid is de minimis aid, which is granted very frequently on account of its low unit value. As a result, the total value of such aid - and therefore also its impact - is very high. An important question is whether and how this type of support influences the implementation of the concept of sustainable development.
