About The Program
▸ The Advantages of The Program
Our Principles 5D
Elimination of inefficient and rudimentary functions of the state, liberation of citizens from unnecessary procedures, restriction of the state control over the business activities in their respective areas.
Simplification of the bureaucratic procedures. Bureaucracy should be a service, a means of development – not a problem.
Elimination of monopolies at all levels and development of a competitive environment..
Dispersing certain functions from central government to the local Government bodies.
The concentration of multiple functions in single institutions create grounds for uncontrolled power. Through de- concentration, most of the functions are redistributed to the industry associations, non-profit professional organizations and businesses.
