The American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine calls on Members of Parliament to support Draft Law #4118 "On Amendments to the Law of Ukraine "On Access to Objects of Construction, Transport, Electricity for the Development of Telecommunication Networks", and Draft Law #3410 "On Amendments to the Law of Ukraine "On Rent of State and Municipal Property" regarding Placement of Technical Means of Telecommunications".
Draft Law #4118 obliges to comply with transparent rules and equal access to infrastructure for all telecom market players. It obliges them to work under the transparent agreements in which the fee for access is established in accordance with the clear methods developed by the Government. This will enable not only to prevent corruption risks and preferences to certain providers but also to improve competition.
Draft Law #3410 is aimed at resolving the problem of placement of technical means of telecommunications by operators and providers on infrastructure facilities, which are in state and municipal property.
Both Draft Laws will provide fair and balanced conditions for the development of the mobile network and digital infrastructure in the country and will promote the implementation of the President's initiative "State in a Smartphone".
We welcome the development of Draft Law #4118 and Draft Law #3410 and call on Members of Parliament to pass them in the first reading.
