A very large number of issues makes work difficult, both for currently operating enterprises and new ones alike. And the regulatory legislation, the position taken by supervisory bodies is not always, shall we say, flexible. There is not always the possibility of rapidly making changes to one regulatory document or other, to adapt them to fit the current circumstances with regard the cultivation of aquaculture facilities of one kind or other — Roman Vityazev, Chairman, Far Eastern Union of Mariculture Enterprises; Chairman, Hyperion.
What kinds of questions does the Chinese investor have? The market in China is too tough, but when they come here and see our authorities taking their time to do things, and see that some things are done at a local level, and other things are done somewhere else, it becomes difficult to understand. They need clarity. They have time. And of course, things need to go faster at every level. That is true of business, of government, of everything. However, I do not see any fightback anywhere — Alexander Lopatnikov, General Director, Marine Aquaculture Ho Xiang.
We are heard, and are requests are considered. Unfortunately, however, this process is a very slow one. In this aspect, we naturally regard our colleagues in China with a discernible degree of envy. The system they have in place for business to interact with government has been built on an entirely different principle. There, the government is primarily interested in solving issues encountered by business and makes every endeavour to do so. Currently, that is left for us to do ourselves — Roman Vityazev, Chairman, Far Eastern Union of Mariculture Enterprises; Chairman, Hyperion.
