The economy minister drew attention to the algorithm of joint work on optimizing the administrative procedures this year. In his words, the agency will have to analyze 750 administrative procedures. By the end of August the Economy Ministry is expected to receive a ready package of proposals on optimizing these procedures. Once the proposals are reviewed by a working group, which will include representatives of government agencies, the private sector, and the parliament, the approved initiatives will be forwarded to the Council of Ministers.
