The corresponding order of Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak gave the Ministry of industry and trade, Ministry of economic development, Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of communications and the Federal Antimonopoly service (FAS), says family-owned Demyan Kudryavtsev, the newspaper “Vedomosti” with reference to the copy of the order.

As notes the edition, import substitution in Russia has not led to a noticeable growth of domestic production. According to the source Newspapers, is preparing a decisive revision. Need, in particular, to simplify procedures, to introduce a single approach to different segments of the market and to unify the procedure for confirming the country of origin.

The abolition of the direct prohibition supported by the FAS. The Department offered to keep the ban for foreign products only in the areas of defence and security. The current ban on the purchase of foreign products when there are two competing goods of Russian origin, should be applied only in exceptional cases and only after analysing the market, according to the FAS.

From the economic development Ministry has not received proposals for the lifting of the ban, the Ministry said. Meanwhile, earlier this Department, on the contrary, proposed to strengthen the import substitution by extending the limitations on the purchase from a single supplier.
