Time for obtaining construction permit in Russia decreased 10 times during five years
A lot of work has been done in Russia to optimize the timing of issuing permits. So, over the past five years, the period for obtaining a building permit has been reduced by almost 10 times and on average does not exceed 200 days, said the head of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI) Svetlana Chupsheva.
“We have launched our national rating of the investment climate and have been conducting it in the regions for five years now. And here there is a positive dynamic that we see. If on obtaining a building permit in different regions there were indicators of 3-1.5 thousand days, for connecting to power grids – also 1.5 thousand days, today (five years have passed) the longest periods throughout the country are 150- 200 days, ”she reported during the meeting with the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin.
Svetlana Chupsheva noted that thanks to these changes, the situation in the interaction between business and regional authorities today “is approaching the best international and Russian practices.”
