Subject Control and supervision on the part of the State remain one of the most acute aspects where interests of the State and business overlap. On the one hand, governmental control is being reformed and some legislative initiatives of the President and RF Government are being implemented. On the other hand, the business community perceives this as the tightened control and supervision.
Objectives The study evaluates the impact of control (oversight) over business operations and analyzes the interaction of business and the State as governmental control practices are being reformed in the Tver Oblast. I also outline my proposals for making the interaction of business and the State more effective so as to create the secure and convenient business environment.
Methods I systematize and analyze the outcome of surveys conducted in the Tver Oblast in 2017 and 2018 among three hundred of business leaders. The study is based on methods of scientific analysis, economic and mathematical statistics, feasibility and logic study, graphic, economic and mathematical modeling.
Results I revealed key issues arising from the interaction of business and controlling and supervisory authorities. The article sets out measures that may contribute to convenient and secure business conditions.
Conclusions and Relevance Business has little interest in organizational aspects of governmental authorities when undergoing controlling and supervisory checks. The business community advocates for measures streamlining such checks, i.e. simple and understandable instructions on control procedures, reduction in statutory reporting, less frequent amendments to the laws.
