Business Under Protection: Guarantees of Business Stability
We also provide supervisory support for the proper arrangement of the road transport infrastructure in the Far East, ensuring the logistics of moving goods, cargo, and vehicles, primarily through uninterrupted movement through checkpoints on our border. Solving these issues is very important not only for the Far Eastern business, but also for large-scale government projects that are of key importance for the whole country, both in the economic and social spheres

Business Under Protection: Guarantees of Business Stability
A digital platform supporting entrepreneurs will be created, it will accumulate all possible types of business support that we provide. <...> The maximum effect from its implementation is possible only, of course, in the case of transferring most of the services provided to entrepreneurs into digital format. It is vital for business

Business Under Protection: Guarantees of Business Stability
All scheduled inspections of business facilities were stopped this year under the supervision of prosecutors, in cases when (and I emphasize this) the lack of inspections did not pose a threat to the life and health of citizens. For example, the number of such inspections in the Far East went down by 90% by 1 July this year. And there is every reason to consolidate this progress. As you know, the head of our state Vladimir Putin, proposed during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, to radically revise legal relations in control and supervision activities, to completely and forever abandon most inspections of Russian businesses, if their activities are not associated with risks of harm to health. <…> My position as the head of the supervisory agency… the fewer checks, the more benefits for our economy

The Right to Defence: Business in Russia and Abroad
We need to minimize the time taken to clear goods imported by businesses. Customs control and clearance should be done at the final point of delivery. Our legislation, incidentally, makes allowances for this. <...> Of course, at the same time, we should push ahead with efforts to develop criteria upon which companies are subjected to customs control. A risk-based approach should be factored in here. <...> We have come up with the corresponding proposals, and these are currently being worked on. <...> And when business violations are identified, a more flexible approach to punishment needs to be taken. <...> Today, work is also under way on a system allowing for the deferral of fine payments in cases where there was no significant loss or harm caused to people’s lives or health. Another key aspect... is the digitalization of state and municipal services provided to entrepreneurs. This can help eliminate the risk of corruption, as well as avoid delays on the part of officials

The Right to Defence: Business in Russia and Abroad
We also understand that artificial encumbrances have disrupted a great many supply chains in our country. Unfortunately, this has sometimes resulted in traffic jams stretching back kilometres and queues of lorries at the border. This in turn has a bearing on the prices of specific goods... and increases the risk of social tension

The Right to Defence: Business in Russia and Abroad
My position is unchanged – there need to be fewer inspections. And they must be reduced. We will ensure this happens through all legal methods and means available to us

National Jurisdiction and Trust in International Relations as a Guarantor of Inward Investment
We have anticorruption legislation ready for possible implementation by the Central Bank for the digital rouble. It is my hope that soon everything will become digital, because that will make it easier to monitor and view earmarked money, and to use public funds in a targeted way – something which we are always talking about

National Jurisdiction and Trust in International Relations as a Guarantor of Inward Investment
Our officials are sometimes unaware of issues in the region which are worrying entrepreneurs. For the second year, an important aspect of the work done by prosecutors is to oversee compliance with the moratorium on planning and conducting inspections of small businesses. In the Far East alone, almost 25,000 businesses were spared from superfluous attention from oversight bodies as a result of the timely waiving of these inspections

National Jurisdiction and Trust in International Relations as a Guarantor of Inward Investment
Prosecutors are interested in direct and open dialogue with entrepreneurs. In order to achieve this, we have developed numerous communication channels, which all work excellently. Entrepreneurs themselves should show a responsible, respectful attitude towards laws and the interests of the state and society. This is vital for mutual respect. The key word here is trust: our trust in you – entrepreneurs and investors – and similarly, the trust of investors and entrepreneurs in the state, oversight bodies, and the prosecutor in particular

Trust in National Jurisdiction as Key to Business Security and Sustained Development

Trust in National Jurisdiction as Key to Business Security and Sustained Development
In the course of our oversight activities, we are seeing an unjustified sharp increase in prices for socially significant goods, food, airfare, tourism products, and certain other services […] Business needs to show respect for the law and other citizens [...] We are willing and will definitely defend such a business

Trust in National Jurisdiction as Key to Business Security and Sustained Development
Without [trust], it is very difficult to imagine healthy competition and a favourable investment climate in our country […] I am well aware of the special mission of the prosecution authorities in creating such trust. Above all, it involves ensuring such uniformity in the legal field and law enforcement in the country […] Much depends on the effectiveness of the prosecutors who exercise their supervisory powers. This was particularly felt at the height of the coronavirus pandemic [...] During this period, about 200,000 violations were suppressed

For the first time, a ban has been imposed on control and supervisory activities without their corresponding registration in the electronic register, which is actually becoming the main mechanism for relations between the controller and the entrepreneur. Digitalization has impacted other issues as well. In the prosecutor’s office [...], a digital platform is widely used to consider appeals from the business community

Based on our own initiative [...] the moratorium on scheduled inspections of small businesses was extended, which enabled more than 60,000 small businesses to carry out their activities undisturbed. In less than a month [...], the law ‘On State and Municipal Control’ will come into force. It introduces such formats of inspector-entrepreneur communication into the legal field as monitoring procurements, selective control, inspection visits, and others, but what’s important is it’s only with the approval of a prosecutor

Ensuring a Sustainable Framework to Attract and Protect Investment: Drawing on Russia and Singapore’s Experience in the Global and Regional Context
In fact, Singapore shows the world, including Russia, how it is possible to attract investment and create a great investment climate through the proper organization of the legal framework and creating a legal gateway in Asia. It is important for investors that when they go to new markets, apart from investments protection guarantees, they have confidence in clear game rules for many years. They should know, that the state will make sure that no additional barriers are created, and the investment climate remains predictably stable
