Legislation and digital tools developed with the participation of experts from the Better Regulation Delivery Office (BRDO) over 2015-2020 saved Ukrainian SMEs UAH 25 billion and another UAH 5.5 billion in government spending, according to the BRDO 2020 annual report.
Over 5 years of BRDO activity:
- 166 pieces of legislation drafted and co-drafted by BRDO experts were adopted, 27 of them in 2020, including 10 laws;
- 1,245 regulatory acts that hampered business were repealed, 36 of them in 2020;
- 5 unique online tools were developed for use by SMEs, civil servants, and local government agencies.
In addition, BRDO experts conducted 18 studies of the construction, energy, transport & infrastructure, IT&Telecom, agriculture, and supervision & control sectors. These studies provide a basis for solving problems facing both businesses and individuals.
“2020 was the year that the largest public policy initiatives BRDO has ever had were adopted,” says Oleksii Dorohan, BRDO CEO. “However, those who profit from corruption are also increasing resistance to change every year. Still, we continue to support the progress of reforms thanks to broad coalitions with representatives of various organizations and institutions.”
