SOCHI, September 27 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Friday he did not think the tax policy should be changed dramatically.
“I have come out with a number of initiatives about the tax regime,” he said at a meeting with Russian businessmen in the framework of the Sochi-2013 international investment forum. “These are not radical proposals, since we have agreed not to change anything dramatically. Our tax regime is rather advanced but at the same time there is room for improvement.” The government, he pledged, was doing its best not to increase the tax burden. “Decisions should be aimed at easing tax pressure,” he added.
The prime minister reminded that ten roadmaps had been elaborated to improve the investment climate in Russia. “I signed the tenth roadmap just yesterday,” he noted. “It is geared to make access to the infrastructure easier for businesses, to reduce bureaucracy, terms and costs of various kinds of paperwork.”
