Interview with President of the American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine Andy Hunder
Let’s take, for example, corruption, which is much talked about. We’ve recently conducted a poll among member companies and 97% of the respondents say corruption is the number one obstacle on the way of business development. The imperfect judicial system was mentioned by 92% of the respondents, bureaucracy by 77%, overregulation by 74%!
Practice shows that the business fulfils its obligations before the state sometimes better than the state does the same for business. What does the business want from the state? First, it wants the state not to impede the business processes, so that they could be easy to manage, in other words – the entrepreneurs should not face the number of obstacles they face nowadays. I think it’s really important for the business to have an opportunity to develop easily and transparently.
