The former state commissioner of the Antimonopoly Committee, Agia Zagrebelska, said that the bill could be submitted to the second reading by the end of the year, and by February next year at the latest.
Deputies discussed the possibility of expanding the list of positions to which the localization will apply. "Including manufacturers of mining equipment, through machines, combine harvesters and other mine equipment (4 positions) with a degree of localization from 10 to 40%," - writes Zagreb.
Space companies also want to be included in the list.
Among those who voted "For" - Sergei Taruta. He is one of the founders of the "Industrial Union of Donbass", one of the largest industrial corporations in Ukraine, engaged in metallurgy and mechanical engineering.
We will remind:
The Ministry of Economy proposes to add to the Prozorro system the criterion of "localization" for goods that have at least 35% of Ukrainian components. Such goods receive a non-price part of the assessment of 30% of the total.
Transparency International Ukraine and a number of public organizations called on the Cabinet of Ministers not to support the draft resolution of the Ministry of Economy on the introduction of a non-price criterion of localization in mechanical engineering procurement.
The Verkhovna Rada registered Bill №3739, which, in particular, provides for the allocation of 4 main subsectors of mechanical engineering, for which localization is proposed at the level of 25-40%.
Former head of the State Customs Service Maxim Nefedov criticized the bill №3739 on the localization of engineering and the introduction of localization as a qualifying criterion for participation in the procurement.
Bill №3739 on changing the rules of public procurement of mechanical engineering products, which provides preferences for products with localized production, does not comply with the Association Agreement with the EU and other obligations of Ukraine and needs to be changed, said Prime Minister Denis Shmygal.
