The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, in the framework of the policy of improving the business envinroment in Ukraine, announced the year of 2018 as a year of adopting progressive regulatory decisions aimed at the development of entrepreneurship. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman.
The Head of Government reminded that in 2017 the Cabinet of Ministers had summoned a number of topical meetings devoted exclusively to the issues of progressive regulation, which resulted in resolutions to abolish hundreds of outdated and cumbersome legislative norms, having served as a major opportunity for corruption and a barrier to the development of business environment.
Meanwhile, in cooperation with the business community, a draft law The Mask Show Stop was drafted, designed to curb out total lawlessness by law enforcement agencies and controlling authorities in the process of verification and search at enterprises. The document was approved by the Parliament by a constitutional majority of votes - 312 MPs in support.
Similarly, in close interaction with experts, another principle of work of the state and the real sector was developed. I am talking about the so-called checklists of inspections, which should contain clear criteria for assessing the work of one or another enterprise. On commission of the Head of Government, each ministry and monitoring department must analyze and compile such checklists, by April 1, along the directions they are responsible for.
"I want to force state inspectors to develop polite attitude to entrepreneurs. What kind of approach the state must develop – it is crucial to control whether everything is done properly: quality, security, payment of taxes - that's what should be looked upon ... It would greatly simplify making business, increase security and quality of the control itself," the Prime Minister assured and reiterated he pursues a zero tolerance public racketeering policy."
In December, the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine drafted a Strategy for Reforming the State Supervision System, which provides for the introduction of a risk-focused approach to inspections, retargeting of the inspection system towards preventing violations and increasing the responsibility of inspectors.
