08-09-2020 | 09:27

Igor Artemiev, Head of the Federal Antimonopoly Service (the FAS Russia), emphasized the need to adopt a new National Competition Development Plan at the meeting of the Government of the Russian Federation on August 27, 2020, which was held in the videoconference format.

In the two years of its existence the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation No. 618, which approved the National Competition Development Plan for 2018-2020, managed to secure the presence of at least three economic entities in all sectors of the economy, no less than one of which belongs to private business (with the exception of the spheres of activity of natural monopolies and organizations of the military-industrial complex).

The number of violations of antimonopoly law by the authorities decreased by 1.3 times (with the target indicator of the National Competition Development Plan by the end of 2020 - by two times).

However, the Order of the President of the Russian Federation No. 618 of December 21, 2017 has not been implemented in part of the adoption of Federal Laws.

This year, the Government of the Russian Federation must submit to the President of the Russian Federation a draft order of the President of the Russian Federation on approval of the National Competition Development Plan for 2021-2025.

The new National Competition Development Plan will focus on the development of small and medium businesses, ensuring effective and transparent management of state and public property, and digitalization of antimonopoly and tariff regulation.

Other issues that are planned to be included in the draft order of the President are:

-       deregulation of natural monopolies;

-       ensuring non-discriminatory access to natural resources;

-       development of organized (exchange) trade

-       improving the effectiveness of procurement control

-       expansion of international cooperation, etc.
