What is deregulation of the economy?

For 5 months, large-scale deregulation of the economy has been ongoing in Ukraine: the government is reducing its control over business activities, canceling or optimising outdated and ineffective licenses, permits, approvals. The volume of savings of financial and time resources of all entrepreneurs of Ukraine from the optimisation of 800 instruments of state regulation will amount to approximately UAH 222 million in the first year of the reform.

What is IWG on deregulation?

In January 2023, the Interdepartmental Working Group on Issues of Accelerated Review of State Regulation of Economic Activity (IWG on Deregulation) was created for this purpose. It is headed by First Vice Prime Minister – Minister of Economy of Ukraine Yuliia Svyrydenko and Vice Prime Minister for Innovation, Development of Education, Science and Technology – Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine Mykhailo Fedorov.

The meetings are also attended by representatives of leading analytical centres, in particular BRDO.

What will you find on the deregulatory reform website?

The site explains the algorithm of the IWG’s work, shows already implemented cases of deregulation and publishes the latest news on the topic.

Also, the resource gives every entrepreneur the opportunity to join the deregulation reform by expressing their opinion or proposal in a Google form. For effective work, the IWG should not only independently look for flaws in the system of Ukrainian legislation, but also respond to specific business requests regarding these changes.

How to share your opinion on deregulation with the state?

If you represent an enterprise and want to provide the Ministry of Economy with feedback on state regulation tools that you encounter in your work, fill out the questionnaire (in Ukrainian).

The site will be expanded in the future. The resource is developed as part of the EU4business: SME Policies and Institutions Support (SMEPIS) project, implemented by Ecorys in a consortium with GIZ, BRDO and Civitta.
