For 4 years the average time of getting construction permit decreased in 40 days
The national rating for the sixth year records improvements in the investment climate in the regions. The positive dynamics is explained by the fact that during this time it was possible to debug the channels of direct communication between investors and the authorities, as well as to adjust the work of regional investment councils, said Svetlana Chupsheva, director general of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives.
“On average, rating scores record improvements for the sixth year in a row. During this time, institutes for business were created in the regions: specialized organizations for attracting investments; The channels of direct communication of investors with the leadership of the entities, as well as the work of regional investment councils, have been established. For example, the average time to obtain a building permit has been reduced by 4 days over 4 years to 100 days; The average connection time to the power grid was reduced by 25 days – to 72 days, ”Svetlana Chupsheva emphasized.
However, the general director of ASI notes, there is still something to work on: this includes reducing administrative pressure on business, introducing new technologies and practices, and digitizing business processes.
