    MOSCOW, January 30 (RIA Novosti) - The Speaker of the State Duma (Lower House of the Russian Parliament), Boris Gryzlov, regards as quite logical the proposal of Vladimir Potanin, a member of the bureau of the Board of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RUIE), to unite the RUIE, the Delovaya Rossia and the Opora Rossii into one national union of entrepreneurs. Gryzlov spoke about it on Friday, talking with reporters.

    In the opinion of Gryzlov, the unification of these organizations would testify that the three leading entrepreneurial unions have understood the necessity of working out new rules, equal for the whole of the business community, for the sake of cooperation between business, the state and society.

    "By uniting their organizational structures, the business community will be able to more efficiently seek the lowering of the administrative barriers and curbing the arbitrary rule of officials, thus making their contribution to the promotion of the administrative reform," underscored the State Duma Speaker.

    Despite the difference in the position and the requirements of the big, small and medium business, Gryzlov is convinced that their interests coincide in the main thing: "to improve the legal basis of the entrepreneurial activity, to form a civilised business environment, and to create favorable conditions for investments." The head of the Lower House believes that the interests of the small business "will be expressed more appreciably" through a united national union of entrepreneurs.

    Boris Gryzlov added that the new composition of the lawmakers will take into consideration the opinion of the united business community in drafting bills concerning the development of the Russian economy.
