Interaction with Public Authorities

Many companies often face difficulties when promoting their legislative initiatives because they explicitly seek to benefit within their own interests (or interests of the group of companies).

Probability of successful regulatory initiatives promotion can be multiplied significantly if there are four components to be accomplished:

  • If there is an independent consultant involved in the process and not affiliated with any of the parties;
  • If a credible feasibility study assumes the long-term interests of all parties (company, industry, State, contractors, consumers, etc.);
  • If all the elements of Government decision-making are counted (priorities, level and decision-making procedures);
  • If an efficient interaction is arranged between all interested parties.
