One of the words in 2016 in Ukraine can be called “deregulation” – reducing the influence and control of the state on business.

“Grateful to the Parliament for the fruitful cooperation, because the economic agenda should unite MPs, regardless of political views. The adoption of several laws in the area of deregulation, corporate governance, public procurement – the Foundation of economic growth, improving transparency and efficiency of the economy,” said Nefedov.
Victor Chernov, Chairman of the Board of the Center for public expertise, chose bills No. 4496 “Simplification of export of services”; No. 2418а “Reform of the state control”; No. 3559 “Public procurement”.
“My choice is due to the fact that the positive impact of just these three laws will apply to the greatest number of business entities in Ukraine. Now there are a number of potentially important new laws, some of them concerned a narrow range of business entities, and some have not quite clear mechanisms of implementation, so at this stage it is difficult to assess,” said Black.
