Data Location


Database can be browsed by submitting a blank search query (though only from this page:, but only 10 results display at a time. The limit to the number of results displayed is a severe logistical limitation to using the database.

There is also a browseable government list of enterprises available here: though it is unclear how comprehensive it is.
