KYIV. March 17 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The Cabinet of Ministers has canceled some regulatory acts in the field of intellectual property, waste disposal and biofuel production, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal has said.

“The government continues to rely on supporting the private sector so that our economy grows again. Therefore, deregulation is becoming one of the key reforms in the economic sphere,” Shmyhal said at a government meeting on Friday.

According to the Prime Minister, the Interdepartmental Working Group on Deregulation created by the Cabinet of Ministers is successfully reviewing regulatory instruments and removing unnecessary barriers.

“Today, we are canceling some regulatory acts in the field of intellectual property, in the field of waste disposal, and in the field of biofuel production. It will allow businesses to work more efficiently and spend less time on unnecessary bureaucracy,” he said.
