Greece could save its businesses hundreds of millions of euros a year and improve their competitiveness by reducing administrative burdens, according to a new OECD report.
This page provides access to regulatory policy in Greece and gives access to the 2014 sectoral reports on measuring and reducing administrative burdens in 13 sectors.
This report summarises the results of the joint project of the Greek Ministry of Administrative Reform and e-Government and the OECD on measuring and reducing administrative burdens in 13 key sectors of the Greek economy.
The role of government is to act as an enabler, generating the right conditions for growth and ensuring that its benefits are fairly distributed. Both the Competition Assessment and the Administrative Burden Reduction project can serve as roadmaps to achieve these goals by making it easier to do business in Greece, said OECD Secretary-General.
The EU Better Regulation project is a partnership between the OECD and the European Commission. It draws on the initiatives for Better Regulation promoted by both organisations over the last few years.
The unique OECD peer review process has helped improve public policy. It assesses how countries manage the design, adoption and enforcement of regulations according to a conceptual framework. It ensures comparability while taking account of institutional and cultural differences across countries.
High public debt leaves virtually no room for fiscal manoeuvre to limit the impact of the crisis in Greece. The close trade and banking links established with the Balkan countries might be a risk in the near future.
This working paper assesses the potential economic benefits from structural reforms in Greece.
