"A number of the government's functions will be cut. Only ten-fifteen percent of them will be left to each ministry," Russian acting Vice Premier Boris Alyoshin said on Wednesday, addressing the forum, "Administrative Reform and Small Business." This forum has been organized by the entrepreneurs' movement, "The Support of Russia." Boris Alyoshin, the head of the government's commission for the administrative reform, explained that the remaining functions would concern, in particular, the budget, property management, tariff and non-tariff regulation.
Half of the government's remaining functions will also undergo changes and will be carried out "on a qualitatively new level," said the Russian acting Vice Premier.
It is planned to give licensing, certification, audit and some other functions to business. Alyoshin believes that the function of evaluating the property will also be given to business.
Presumably, in a number of cases, the federal government will delegate the functions of supervision to the regions. But the government will control the fulfillment of these functions by the subjects of the Federation "to prevent arbitrary rule in the territories," the acting Vice Premier explained.
Boris Alyoshin underscored that the main principle of the state's activity must be "non-interference with the affairs of business."
