SUP and BRDO will define the most attractive Ukrainian regions for doing business


On July 5, 2017, the Union of Ukrainian Entrepreneurs (SUP) and the Better Regulation Delivery Office (BRDO) signed the agreement on cooperation within the implementation of the Regional Doing Business project.

The aim of the project is the business climate inspection in 24 Ukrainian regions and in Kyiv with the goal of further decreasing the regulatory pressure on business representatives.

Medium and large business representatives will take part in the survey. The comprehensive doing business analysis will be conducted based on the World Bank methodology in five areas:

  • Getting construction permits;
  • Registration of the land plot under real estate facilities;
  • Connecting to electricity networks;
  • Setting up an enterprise;
  • Local taxes.

The rating of all Ukrainian regional centers in terms of the mentioned above aspects will be formed on the basis of the obtained results.

“Ukrainian entrepreneurs are our main partners when it comes to changes. The BRDO is striving for making effective decisions in the cooperation with the business. It is important for us to know your thoughts and comments on our deregulation initiatives,” the BRDO Head Oleksiy Honcharuk said.

“The improvement of business climate in Ukraine and deregulation are the main goals of the SUP. After all, the interference of governmental authorities in enterprises’ activities very often has negative signs. We hope that the Regional Doing Business implementation will have positive impact on the activity of independent Ukrainian entrepreneurs united by the Union and will promote the improvement of the doing business conditions in the regions,” the SUP Executive Director Kateryna Glazkova said.
