ON-THE-GROUND SPOT CHECKS TO MONITOR ROADMAP IMPLEMENTATION
Following the Presidential Economic Council meeting on December 4, 2013 (No. Pr-3072), the President of the Russian Federation asked the Leaders Club to work with other Russian entrepreneurs’ associations to regularly verify on-the-ground implementation of measures to reduce the complexity and cost of administrative procedures. Verification is performed unannounced, by an entrepreneur unknown to the agencies in question, and includes legislatively prescribed procedures related to customs, construction, registration of companies and property rights, and access to energy infrastructure. This analysis gives an unbiased picture of the number of such procedures, as well as the time and cost borne by entrepreneurs as a result. What are the benefits of these unannounced spot checks, and what have been the initial results? What should be done to attract entrepreneurs from the regions?
