Sergey Levkin: Developers notice lowering administrative barriers in construction
In accordance with the results of VCIOM research, administrative pressure took 13th position, said Sergey Levkin, Head of the Moscow Department of Urban Planning Policy.
According to him, only 5.4% of respondents mentioned administrative burden. Among the problems of high importance the respondents noted economic situation – 35.7% of respondents pointed on it.
He noted that the research was conducted by the Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VCIOM). Experts interviewed 1000 representatives of Moscow construction companies and concluded that respondents are well informed about the reforms, which are carried out by the city government, and give them an upbeat assessment.
“Judging by the results of VCIOM research, the improvements in terms of lowering administrative barriers in construction industry are evident. Many entrepreneurs say that the problem of administrative barriers has gone far into the background,” told Sergey Levkin in his interview to MK.ru.
The Head of the Department added that another study on regulation of construction in Moscow was carried out by E&Y («Ernst & Young”).
“The results have pleased us, too. In the survey, developers and builders with international experience noted the increase in transparency of administrative procedures, the convenience of e-document flow, the reduction of terms and number of approvals as well as the service quality increase,” stressed Sergey Levkin.
