Chart 1. IMoRe dynamics

The index for monitoring of reforms (iMoRe) fell again almost to zero. An assessment of the progress of reforms for the period of March 20 – April 2, 2017 is +0.1 point on a scale of -5.0 to +5.0. Although there was a series of positive developments in the reform of the monetary sector, business environment, and energy sector, experts have noted a significant setback of the index component “governance”

Among the major events that occurred during this round is the requirement of e-declarations for anti-corruption activities, contractors of  anticorruption NGOs, members of supervisory boards of state enterprises, and public councils under state bodies. This event has received the lowest score from experts in iMoRe history (since the beginning of 2015). Experts noted the negative impact of this law on the progress of anti-corruption and corporate governance reforms.

Among positive changes, experts noted the simplification of procedures on rising external financing, cancellation of a number of barriers for doing business, reduction of the list of dual-use goods, implementation of procedures for providing subventions to local budgets for reimbursement of medicines, and the introduction of a procedure of preliminary price approval in controlled transactions for the purpose of transfer price formation. .…..  read more in iMoRe #57
