Identified problems and shortcomings in the field of investment and foreign trade. In particular, a transparent system for the selection and implementation of projects that are most effective for a particular region has not been introduced. Therefore, some existing projects operate at a loss and lose their export potential.
There are also cases of formalities and unreasonable delays in the implementation of projects due to the lack of a systematic approach to coordination and control.
To solve these problems, the agency proposes to organize a three-level system for the selection and implementation of projects on the basis of the project office under the Ministry of Investment and Foreign Trade. It is planned to organize 14 regional project groups and 207 in districts and cities.
