Russia makes a breakthrough on the indicator “obtaining a construction permit”
Russia’s success in the Doing Business-2019 rating in terms of “Obtaining a building permit” can be considered a real breakthrough, said Svetlana Chupsheva, director general of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI).
According to Svetlana Chupsheva, this procedure is one of the most difficult and time-consuming for entrepreneurs, and the fact that Russia moved to 48th place in a year (from 115th last year) is the result of serious work and high achievement.
“The terms of engineering surveys, issuance of building permits and commissioning of the facility have been reduced. In the current rating, Russia received a high rating on construction quality control, which means that the reduction of terms is not to the detriment of quality. By the way, according to this indicator, Russia’s results are even higher than the average for OECD countries (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development)”, said Svetlana Chupsheva.
