The joint work of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food and the Parliamentary Committee on Agrarian Policy and Land Relations on deregulation of the agroindustrial complex is already providing first results. Recently a number of legislative acts have been elaborated, the implementation of which allows agricultural businesses to significantly save on the bureaucratic procedures. Even today, the economic effect of this work for the agribusiness sector makes up 5 billion hryvnias per year.
This was stated by MP, a member of the Parliamentary Committee on Agrarian Policy and Land Relations, a co-author of the legislations on deregulation, Ivan Miroshnichenko, during the press-conference regarding the bill №2558a which provides for the abolition of 22 licensing procedures for farmers.
He said that the bill №2558a had been developed in close cooperation with the agricultural business community and was aimed at facilitating the work of agricultural industries. In addition, the MP said that the previous year had seen the adoption of a number of bills that had really simplified the work of farmers and deregulated the agricultural sector.
“For the last 20 years our whole bureaucracy machine has been striving to complicate the work by the need to obtain additional certificates and permits. This costed substantial amounts of money for individual producers. Therefore, the work on deregulation which is carried out both by this law and the previously adopted ones is, in fact, very cost-effective for our producers,” said the member of the relevant committee.
According to Ivan Miroshnichenko, deregulation “is one of the good examples of not only efficient work of the Agricultural Committee and the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food, but also of how in a planned and systematic manner to help the business in Ukraine, particularly the agricultural sector.”
