The Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) of Russia has published the 2020 White Paper of Pro-Competitive Practices. It includes nine of the best metropolitan practices. This was reported by Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations Vladimir Efimov.
“Moscow is constantly launching new projects, services and training programs that help businessmen to develop their own business,” said the deputy mayor. – Including in the capital, the transparency of the public procurement process is being increased and equal conditions are created for all market participants. Nine pro-competitive practices in Moscow were recognized by the FAS as one of the best in Russia. These include solutions in the field of industry, entrepreneurship and tourism. “
Let us remind you that the FAS compiles the White Book annually. This is a kind of collection of the best practices of regional authorities aimed at promoting competition. From 2012 to 2021, the Federal Antimonopoly Service published nine White Papers. Among the most successful decisions of Moscow, the FAS noted the optimization of the procurement management process under 223-FZ. In addition, the results of the mbm.mos.ru portal for entrepreneurs were highly appreciated. The White Book also noted two Moscow solutions for the development of the tourism industry. The first is the launch of the digital service Russpass, which helps to plan a trip around Russia. The second successful practice was the Moscow Travel Hack, a digitalization hackathon in the tourism industry.
According to the Federal Antimonopoly Service, Moscow has made significant progress in improving fair trade. Since 2014, the city has simplified the procedure for providing trade places at weekend fairs.
In addition, the White Paper also mentioned the transfer of public services to electronic form.
“The FAS also highlighted such pro-competitive practices of the capital as automation in the field of state control, simplification of the procedure for technological connection to power grids and the provision of targeted support to industrial enterprises,” he added Head of the Moscow Department for Competition Policy Ivan Shcherbakov.
