Unified standards for government services in the construction sphere in Russia
Russia’s rise in the World Bank’s rating of 67 positions shows significant progress in reducing administrative barriers in construction, said Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko.
Despite the fact that the Doing Business rating considers indicators only in Moscow and St. Petersburg, the results of the reforms are noticeable throughout the country, said Vitaly Mutko. In particular, a target model for simplifying the receipt of construction permits is being introduced in the regions, which establishes a list of targets for each Russian subject aimed at improving the investment climate.
In addition, the Ministry of Construction of Russia has developed a draft federal law on uniform standards for the provision of state and municipal services in the urban planning sector, the deputy prime minister said.
“These standards will become normative legal acts and will receive priority over administrative regulations, will allow to ensure uniform for all regions the procedures for providing services in the urban planning sphere. Uniform standards of services together with the national project “Housing” and the digital transformation that occurs throughout the country will give a synergistic effect, which will make the Russian regions attractive for investors”, said Vitaly Mutko.
