MINSK, 16 January (BelTA) – The government bodies need to step up the effort to raise public awareness of the new business rules, Belarusian Prime Minister Andrei Kobyakov said at the Council of Ministers' session on 16 January dedicated to the measures to ensure Belarus' social and economic development and the expected economic results in January and Q1 2018, BelTA has learned.
Andrei Kobyakov stressed the need to raise public awareness of the new business opportunities opening up with the adoption of the package of documents on entrepreneurship development.
“The Economy Ministry and oblast executive committees in cooperation with the Tax and Duties Ministry, the Antimonopoly Regulation and Trade Ministry, the Healthcare Ministry, and other parties concerned need to arrange meetings and seminars in every region in the near future. They need to explain the new business rules and how to observe them in plain language using specific examples,” the PM emphasized. He added that business promotion councils should be engaged in this work, too. “I think that we will have to completely revitalize such councils in some regions,” the official remarked.
He also offered to assess the regulatory impact of every drafted bylaw on business with the participation of the Business Promotion Council. “Everything should be based on the spirit of the adopted documents. The government has approved the plans to implement the new approaches to business regulation. Every relevant instruction has been given to local authorities,” Andrei Kobyakov underlined.More about Economy
