Digital platform for processing businesspersons’ applications to be launched in November
MOSCOW, September 2 (RAPSI) – Digital Pro-Business Platform via which entrepreneurs will be able not only to report cases of pressure on businesses, but also to ensure their cases are to be settled on merits will become operational on November 25, the press-service of Boris Titov, Russia’s Business Ombudsman, informs on Monday.
The new independent platform shall be used by businesspersons for getting response to their applications from the Interior Ministry, the developers believe. In case an entrepreneur is not satisfied with the Interior Ministry answer, platform analytics are to examine such a response and inform the Ministry about the results; if need be, the analytical report will be sent to the Prosecutor General’s Office, according to the civil ombudsman for protection of detained businesspersons’ rights, Alexander Khurudzhi.
The civil ombudsman believes the digital platform needs to be run by a separate interdepartmental agency as only an independent structure may ensure real results as concerns lesser pressure on business.
This July, Russia’s Federal Tax Service registered an autonomous nongovernmental organization to be the operator of the new service, the development of which was initiated by President Vladimir Putin.
