KHABAROVSK, June 29. /Offset. TASS Sergey Mingazov/. The main obstacle to entrepreneurship and investment in the far East is the pressure Supervisory and enforcement authority, which destroys the economy of enterprises. This opinion was expressed on Thursday Vice-Premier, the Plenipotentiary of RF President in the far Eastern Federal district (FEFD) Yuri Trutnev.
“For two and a half years in the far East it took 130 thousand inspections of enterprises and entrepreneurs, not counting inspections and audits in the framework of the operational-search activities. The pressure on businesses by the regulatory bodies and law enforcement agencies is the main obstacle for enterprises,” – said Trutnev, speaking at the joint meeting of Ministry and General Prosecutor’s office, which takes place in Khabarovsk.
The envoy said that for the first half of 2017, the water Park “Miracle Island” in the Kamchatka region has suffered five inspections. “From this amount may not be no miracles, no Islands, but this is not the most profitable enterprise. In fact – a gift from the investor to the residents of Kamchatka”, – said Trutnev. He also reminded about the power interference in the activities of the company “Dobroflot” in Primorsky Krai in March 2016.
“It is unacceptable that law enforcement agencies begin to storm the enterprise, even without understanding, whether there is corpus delicti in the actions of entrepreneurs”, – said Trutnev. According to him, such actions are “essentially destroy the economy of the enterprise”, from which suffer not the owners and managers of the company and their employees.
“Suffer the citizens, who receive no wages, and this is leads to a decrease in living standards and reduction of payments to the budget”, – said the envoy. According to him, is a threat to the economic power of Russia. Trutnev proposed to introduce liability for damages from undue interference in the activities of enterprises, to radically reduce the number of unscheduled inspections, which were “a scourge to the economy of enterprises”, and in the case of non-verification of facts from statements of citizens – to impose a penalty for dishonest applicants.
Deputy Prime Minister also considers it necessary to delegate part of the authority of many regulatory bodies from the Federal to the regional level. In his opinion, the governors will be better able to consider the factors of economic development in the appointment of those or other tests.
