Consequences of acceptance by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine of the Law "About the General Principles It Is State — Private Partnership" were commented the state enterprise "Nikolaev Sea Trade Port" by the chief Vasily Kapatsina.
"Very important law. Those heads of seaports who assume responsibility and commercialize activity of ports, sign contracts with investors, in our times of political instability assume blow. Always there are people who accuse them: "This theft, is corruption".
Unfortunately, we didn't wait while for acceptance "The law on ports". But it is good that already there is this "The law about is state - private cooperation". It puts a rigid framework: as it is necessary to work with the state property investors, whether it be foreign or domestic.
Two important points: contracts of joint activity and concession.
Under contracts on joint activity of regulatory base, except one paragraph in the Economic code, anything isn't present. In itself contracts were very much - are very vulnerable. "The law about it is state - private cooperation", as a matter of fact, I legalized them. Because, based on the Law, it hope, will be possible to register responsibility of the investor for freght traffics. Then such form of activity, certainly, will have the right for life. Not a secret that still a year ago the mention of joint activity caused in certain shadow schemes much feeling. Therefore, of course, it is necessary standardly - legal base. Then there will be more heads, capable to assume responsibility", - declared V. Kapatsin.
"In joint activity there was one very essential shortcoming is an absence of responsibility of the cargo owner and the partner for the declared and taken obligations for freght traffics. Well it isn't lucky freight! "Crisis! That I can make, dear chief of port! " And responsibility - any", - the chief of the Nikolaev sea trade port V. Kapatsina added.
We will remind that on June 25, 2009. The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the Law "About the General Principles It Is State — Private Partnership".
The law defines legal principles of a state policy in the sphere is state - private partnership and the basic principles of interaction of the state with the private sector of economy on a contractual basis.
