Political scientist: the idea of the Agency of technological development of logical


However, this idea need to match with the maximum improvement of the business climate, business climate, reduce the pressure on entrepreneurs, reducing the administrative barriers, believes the Vice-President of the Center for political technologies Alexei Makarkin.

MOSCOW, 3 Dec. The growth of non-oil exports, the main indicator of work of Russian agencies, as well as the initiative to create the Agency for technological development is reasonable, but their implementation should match with the maximum improvement of the business climate in the country, said Vice-President of the political technologies Centre Alexei Makarkin.

The President of Russia Vladimir Putin during the annual address to the Federal Assembly proposed that the growth of non-oil exports, the main indicator of the work of agencies and the government of the Russian Federation as a whole. The President also stated that it was necessary to create in Russia the Agency for technological development, which will assist enterprises in purchasing domestic and foreign patents and licenses.

“The quality of the economy is largely determined by the demand for manufactured products in foreign markets is clear. The fact that the economy’s dependence on raw materials leads to quite obvious and sad results is again clear. Therefore, such initiatives seem quite reasonable. I think it is quite rational,” said Makarkin.

According to him, the question is how these initiatives will be fulfilled, in particular whether it will be possible to determine the necessary priorities for financing. The second problem is excessive control on the part of officials, administrative barriers, he added.

“The state literally fighting with these barriers already 15 years old, I think, but barriers still remain. We have this problem. That is, the optimal choice of priorities and the removal of limitations. Moreover, when you start to remove restrictions, then it turns out that for many constraints are specific interests, and therefore, those who deal with these restrictions, of course, these interests are maximally defend, including corruption schemes,” said Makarkin, commenting that it is not clear how to do it.

“I think the idea is quite adequate, but must of course match with a maximum improvement of the business climate, business climate, reduce the pressure on entrepreneurs, reducing the administrative barriers. If it really happens, may be given an incentive to the development of entrepreneurship and the solution of these problems”, — the expert believes.
