Looking into 2019, FIC President Yana Mikhailova pointed out that ”FIC will continue to advocate for speeding up the reforms and acceleration of accession negotiations in order to catch up with EU level of economic development. 3 key FIC expectations from the Government are to achieve sustainable fiscal consolidation (structural reforms, especially privatization and corporatization of state-owned enterprises), improve law implementation, especially in tax area (strengthening tax administration), and provide more transparency in public consultations with focus on reforms in 8 priority topics: tax, labour, digitalization & e-commerce, real-estate, inspections, food safety, and overall legal framework, with emphasis on regulations on bankruptcy and foreign exchange operations. We hope that the re-launched joint Task Force with the Government will bring the tangible results next year.” concluded FIC President.
