More than 40 procedures in housing construction repealed in 3 years
Only in the last three years due to changes in the federal legislation and the legislation of the city more than 40 procedures related to housing construction have been repealed. The statement was announced by Ekaterina Shapochka, Partner, Advisory, Government & Public Sector leader at PwC Russia.
“In recent years, the federal government and the Government of Moscow are carrying out extensive work to reduce administrative barriers in construction sector. There are two global key areas: reducing the number, the terms and the cost of procedures and improving the user experience,” noted Ekaterina Shapochka.
In her opinion, transferring state services to electronic format encourages improvement of investment climate.
The survey “From Moscow to São Paulo” is based on the same methodology as the “Cities of Opportunity” report in which PwC compares the E7 cities according to 10 categories and 59 variables, assigning points and ranking the cities depending on their respective results. Based on the data for each particular variable, the E7 cities’ results were ranked from best to worst. Then, they were assigned points, from 7 (best result) to 1 (worst result). This distinguished rating evaluates the work of the authorities, helping to predict the development of the city in the future, to identify problems and to find solutions.
